The signs say the trails are closed with no explanation. A local told me the signs have been there for thirty years, and don't mean anything. I tried calling the refuge for more info, but couldn't get through. I wrote to the contact given for fws.gov, and they replied and said the trails are "currently temporarily closed because we are doing some maintenance in that section of the refuge. They are closed for public safety because we may at any time be moving large pieces of equipment." So, I wouldn't advise going on this trail until this is resolved. It's unfortunate that they can't put this kind of info on their website.

Great easy flat trail. Park either at the dead end of Taylor way or Karee Road on a residential street

After reaching the fork between Taylor way and otter valley, there is a small pond on the right impossible to miss! I have had the privilege of seeing Blue Herons, kingfishers, hawks, and mallards there. Some dead trees in the pond make for some great landing points. Definitely worth looking at early in the morning before bikers and hikers get there. Arrive before 7:30.

First to Review

This is the One Mile Loop trail in Maynard Massachusetts. this is a great spot for some trail running and it connects to a wildlife reserve that has about 2,000 acres with many other trails.
