I have been here several times, yet this is the first time with the new baby, so I'm carrying 'almost 2 months' on my front, and 'almost 22 months on my back' (it's always a good stretch on a couple of the hills) and I was really pleased that in a wooded area with water, there were very, very few bugs. Huge Plus For Me! Pleasant trail, as always.

I did this trail twice today. Once with my toddler then later with my whole family. We enjoyed it both times. Easy to follow with forks in the road for different choices. The kids loves the bridges and the water. We saw plenty of birds and ducks in the am but only ducks in pm. Great trail for the whole family especially with Kids.

i gree up out on these little trails. i live wicked close and know them well

Nice peaceful hike. Our three year old walked on his own the whole time. Pushing our 18 month old in the jog stroller was tricky at times over the sections of trail heavily rooted. We will definitely return to this trail.

nice easy walk with kids through the woods, over a few bridges, and around a small pond. it's very short though. it's good for a one time visit.

nice short walk. not too many views but there is some wildlife to see. I went in mid March so the leaves haven't come back yet you could see the nearby houses through the trees, which spoils it for me a little.

I like the old colonial style stone walls from the old farm land markers.

A hidden gem for birding and also a great place to bring kids for some easy hiking.

I did this one twice. The first time was on a weekday and there were many Moms on a nature hike with their children. The second time was early on a Saturday morning and there weren't many people. A previous reviewer said dogs are not allowed but there were several on the trail the first time I went; some on leash, some off leash. The Audubon Society has a good map, but it is called Attleboro Springs Wildlife Sanctuary at La Salette, OR Oak Knoll Wild Life Sanctuary. The directions on the trail can be a little confusing in conjunction with the map from the Audubon Society.

Beautiful trail during fall. Colors automatically pop! Wish there was more lake tho...water levels are low. There are a lot of roots to be careful of tho.

Great established trails. Could use some more dirt on the oak trail. Too many roots can make you trip

It was a great little hike. The wildlife was fairly abundant today. I witnessed wild turkeys, mallards swimming, and a 3-4 baby turtles. The field before the trail was also full of Easter eggs! There was an Easter Egg hunt going on for little children this morning.

This is a very easy hike suitable for taking small kids. One drawback is that it is the trail is in sight of a number of nearby houses. Even though there is only a single loop trail, nice maps are available. Also, it appears that geocaching is popular here as we spotted two caches amonst the rocks.
