One Saturday afternoon my two teenage daughters, my husband and I hiked in this beautiful. Peaceful spot. We spent 45 minutes roaming around reasonably well marked trails, taking photos of scenery and ourselves and giggling at our own poor mapping skills and mostly enjoying having the area to ourselves! Healthy, happy and with a pleasant memory we headed the short... More

Sweet spot for meandering through woods, around a pond, down lanes, and through a Holly Forrest, with spring flowers in bloom.

Great wide trails, we really enjoyed the foliage. I can imagine when the rhododendrums are blooming, it must be just beautiful. Even in March, we saw some crocuses poking their heads out!

We visited a few of the Audubon nature reserves and this was one of the best (the other good one was Long Pasture, avoid Skunknett as there is almost no water access or views) because of the lovely vistas, the access to the pond and the opportunity to see frogs and turtles.

Frogs, frogs, frogs! One of the highlights of our summer in the Cape is our annual frog spotting trip to Ashumet Holly preserve. We take the kids and walk around Grassy Pond and count the number of frogs we see. Every year we somehow manage to see more. Last year we thought we had seen more than we ever could... More

This is another place only the locals know about. So beautiful. Really well cared for and so quiet. A magical place. They do not allow dogs and there is a small fee to walk around (helps pay for upkeep). Hollies are very mystical trees and this place is chock full of them.

Visited in off-season, the spring. It was gorgeous, with flowering trees, fresh green growth, and even berries on some of the holly. Saw a Green Heron, turtle, lots of Song Sparrows, and Red-Winged Blackbirds, and Swallows. The paths are clear, though the signposts are a little sparse - you won't lose your way! There's helpful info about the background and... More
