A great spot for a winter walk
Feb 2020
I was staying in Hyannis for business, and found Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary for a much needed late afternoon walk to unwind. With well marked trails that highlight a mix of salt marsh, woods, and pasture, this was a beautiful spot to spend an hour in nature after a day indoors. I recommend it.

Lovely trails and access to the water, which has lovely views. You can decide the length of walk you want to take. Great for children.

Great Place for a Quiet Walk
Nov 2019
Went in November, so it was not busy and very quiet. Paths are well marked and easy to walk. Staff is very friendly, and trail maps are available. At this time of the year there is little wild life to see, but the area is beautiful and nice to visit. Walks can be as short as a few hundred yards or if you choose the long trail can be almost 2 miles. Trails run along the ocean, through the woods and along pastures. Dogs not allowed, so be aware of this if you decide to visit. There is a small fee to visit: $3.00/ senior adult.

Disappointing
Sep 2019 • Couples
I was expecting more I guess. Little information, trails not well marked and no facilities apart from a portaloo. A couple of nice viewpoints but no hides and no sense of welcome.

Kayak trip from Long Pasture to Sandy Neck
Aug 2019
I took the kayak trip from Long Pasture to Sandy Neck lighthouse. It was a wonderful trip. I am an experienced kayaker but did not need to bring my own equipment as everything was provided.

The trip provided me with a unique visit to Sandy Neck....and the guided walk through the dunes brought my attention to details I would have missed. If you like a first hand experience of the wildlife, nature beauty that is Cape Cod, this trip is something you should not miss.

If you aren't up for a kayak trip, the center itself is all you could want for a visit....either alone or with others.

Nice trails, great views
Jul 2018
The Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary is a large property on which a former summer home sits, the entirety of which was apparently donated some time ago. The main house is used as the visitors center, and has turtle tanks, literature, and small exhibits. The volunteer on the day we visited was very knowledgeable. We walked down to the beach, and found a horseshoe crab shell, tidepools, and tidal flats. It's a biologically diverse, uncrowded beach perfect for exploring. There are many programs here - plan ahead to take advantage.

For a family with young kids, it’s a great walk and beach, but wear bug repellant.
Jul 2018 • Family
During a hot summer afternoon, my family and I set off on the shaded walks around ponds, marshy areas and then ambled up to the pasture humming with butterflies and dragonflies. Kids found lots of critters to investigate including a display of live 4-inch caterpillars beginng to ccocoon into moths, and birds nesting. Finished with a refreshing beach swim at low tide where we discovered a horshoe crab scuttling by. Hard to beat nature walk next to a beautiful beach. Visit only marred by incessant attacks by mosquitos in the woods, and green heads on the beach. Wear repellant and have a 5-star trip!

Best few hours of the vacation
Aug 2018 • Family
Go at low tide and walk out on the salt marsh. See the exposed oyster beds. See the crabs and fish swimming in tidal pools. Walk out 200 feet and be in only 3 feet of water in the middle of the harbor. We saw a live horseshoe crab that was amazing. The grounds have trails to walk - a bird sanctuary. The displays in the victors center have turtles to touch and butterfly info. Great fun

Beautiful walk!
Jul 2018 • Couples
Stopped here just driving thru and we glad we did. We paid $5 for both of us to explore the beautiful gardens, walk along the tidal flats, and check out the turtle tanks inside the welcome center. We ended up grabbing our chairs and sitting down at the beach for an hour to read in the sun because it was so lovely looking across at Sandy Neck lighthouse area. Also, they have a great active interpretive bee hive that you can open from both sides to watch bees doing their thing.

Nice short walk

Enjoyable walk through the fields out to a quiet beach. 2 1/2 miles of trails. Nice way to spend quiet beach time.
