Three access points with off street parking, Old Meetinghouse Rd, Quinquiseett Rd, and Mashpee Neck Rd. Trails on both sides of river. Trails are well marked for the most park. SN trail seems to be poorly marked the longer you follow it. Few other hikers and some mountain bikes. Lots of dog walkers but they mostly are near parking areas.... More

This trail is a great little place to take a walk! The atmosphere is quite peaceful, and you'll follow the course of the Mashpee River over several miles of well-marked trail. The grade is also gentle, so almost anyone can walk this trail without issue. My husband and I didn't see anyone else on the trail for the 90 minutes... More

This wonderland of Cape landscapes is a must-see for everyone! Sidle alongside the Mashpee River and its surrounding grassland, forests, ponds, bridges and trails for a one-of-a-kind Mid Cape excursion well worth the trouble. We saw eagles, osprey, foxes and all kinds of water fowl plus caners, kayakers and fellow hikers. For a real treat, go when the fall colors... More

We parked on River Road to get to the gorgeous Mashpee River. It is down the street from New Seabury and close to our timeshare. We just crossed one other person walking their dogs. It is a well kept trail and has a lot of wildlife. We even managed to see deer on the other side of the riverbank. Wonderful... More

Bald eagles, ospreys, songbirds, wildlife, peace, and serenity are all waiting for you here. It is never crowded; in fact, you will rarely see another walker. Great for "walking meditation" or just appreciating nature.

My wife and I have traveled 100s of miles on the trails around the Mashpee River. The trails are well cared for and area is very beautiful with spring and fall a delightful times to visit. Wear a hat and don't worry about cyotes; weve seen one deer in 13 years.
