Had a wonderful walk at the Lowell Holly Reservation. My husband & I decided we wanted to spend the day visiting places in Mashpee, so we decided to take a walk here. It was a hot day, so we drove down a long dirt road to the parking lot next to the pond. It is a small parking lot and... More

Went hiking and really enjoyed how peaceful and beautiful the trail was especially around the pond. Was particularly surprised by the size and number of holly trees. Very enjoyable and only moderately challenging.

A nice and peaceful place to explore, just make sure you check yourself for ticks. I have picked upticks as late and November.

This is a nice place BUT, we were "greeted" by a caretaker who was on the beach with 3 or 4 white samoyed dogs who told us that the place was not open yet, but that he thought that it was OK for us to walk about. Dogs were great!, guy was not -- especially since the official opening date... More

Came a little early in the season, so the trees weren't filled in yet. Nevertheless, it was a nice, mildly challenging 1.5 mile walk. Halfway through, I made it to a beautiful body of water and I lingered a little bit to enjoy the view and the breeze. There is more trail than I made use of today, but it... More

This is a great place to go for a short hike, get some fresh air, & maybe go for a quick dip! There are two different parking lots, and in the summertime they fill up quickly, so I'd strongly suggest going really early in the morning, or come in the off-season.

We enjoyed our walk here with our two dogs, and met several people on the walk doing the same thing. Walked in the wooded reserve through beeches, hollies, white pine and other woods. After about a mile and a half arrived on the beach of Mashpee Wakeby pond. If your dogs enjoy the water you'll love it. We were looking... More

Went here right before summer. Perfect time to bring the dogs. Great views of the water. A good afternoon walk!

You have to buy the beach sticker to bring the kids for the summer on the side that you can drive down. That side is only open in the summer and there are gates. They have very shallow water, a lifeguard, bathrooms and a playground area and picnic tables. I've brought 8 kids here with my daughter and we felt... More

This secluded preserve is a peninsula jutting out between 2 lakes. Nice walking trails and views. Also has a beach area and, very rare, a pet friendly area of beach where you can take poochy in for a swim.
