The Lowell Holly Reservation is a beautiful place to take a long walk amongst the large forest of beech trees, hollies and rhododendrons. I recommend going in the Fall when the beech trees turn a golden yellow and leaves crunch under foot. There is a large lake that can been seen from many vantage points along the forest paths. Parking is limited though and it’s a bit tricky to find. This is a must do for nature lovers!

Lovely trees around the ponds
Oct 2018 • Couples
We stopped here in spontaneous response to the colours of the leaves on the trees. Some lovely easy walks and ponds. Glad we stopped and a welcome introduction to the colours of New England.

This is a Trustees of the Reservations property and a nice walk through the woods to the meeting of Mashpee and Wakeby Ponds.
It can be a bit hard for Seniors an=s the ground is not exactly level

The bugs ate us alive!
Jun 2018 • Couples
It is mid June, so maybe the time of year was not to our advantage, but we were eaten alive by misquito's. With bug spray and all!
It appears to be a nice path. There were no trail maps, and older hard to find markings, so not sure where we were really headed. But the trail was fairly well groomed, soft pine needles and tree roots.
It was very grown with not many openings as we were birding so thought due to the dense nature things were quiet.
We left the woods due to the misquito's and watched for birds in the parking lot.

Headed North to check out Ryder Conservation land. $15 beach fee even to bird so left.
Finding places to just park and walk is a challenge.
Where there is water it appears either "Private" or $$$.

Went to Boyden Farm Conservation Land, where we could park for free, enjoyed a nice trail and with the vegetation more open more sightings and more enjoyable.

Lowell Holly is across from our property in Mashpee, although it is officially in Sandwich, Ma We see all kinds of wildlife there. Many birds. Great Herons, woodpeckers, coyotes, many trails, and a few beaches.

Great place in the offseason
Sep 2017 • Solo
A longer (but quiet) walk from the off-season parking lot. Had the place to myself for a 3 mile run in the woods. Very scenic, nice mix of single-track and wide dirt roads. Plenty of water-side trail with views. About 5 miles of trail total.

Nice place to walkk

This area is managed by the Trustees of Reservations and it is lovely for a walk. There is variety in the vegetation and you often have views of the lakes that surround Lowell Holly.

Good Place For a Short Hike
May 2017 • Couples
Located in my neighborhood I visit Lowell Holly about once a month. It is hilly so best for those in shape or at least with adequate hiking shoes. It is rewarding to walk to the water and even all the way out to the point. The Sandwich Beach next to Lowell Holly is better suited for families and tourists since the beach is cleaned and I believe they have bathrooms and a playground? You can pick up a summer pass or day pass if you are not local.
