“Great trails and spectacular view”

Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Long Pasture Sanctuary is a great place for adult and kids to hike. The trails are easy but varied. It passes a small pond, holly trees and farm animals. The trails ends at the visitor's center with a million dollar view of the Sandy Neck lighthouse. Bring your cameras.

Local farmers tend to their animals on the property, which is a treat for kids. You could spend a good two hours enjoying the trails, the animals and the views.

One has to search to find the almost too-unobstrusive Audubon sign alongside route 6A, but drive slowly, and it's worth the pause. This is one of the smaller sanctuaries in the Massachusetts' collection, but one of the loveliest, located in the midst of seacoast, with an astounding view and access to Barnstable Harbor, and pasture lands. Bluebirds flock to the latter; sea ducks populate the former, and so can visitors, in the available kayaks. The director is convivial and knowledgeable, and there are frequent programs, involving everything from the resident farm animals to owls to sea creatures. It's never crowded, and always a wonderful spot to walk, sit, and discover.

wanted to go kayaking but the wind was just too strong. Long Pasture was my backup plan for the day. For a 4 dollar admission I spent the entire afternoon following the self guided trails. Amazing meadows which attracted many butterflies and a trail that went to the waters edge and a beach area which overlooked a lighthouse. One trail takes you to a small farm in which goats, chickens and hugh white turkey's are roaming freely. Kayaking can wait for another day.
