This beautiful wildlife sanctuary is located right in the city of Worcester, Massachusetts, on 414 Massasoit Road. You’d barely know it was there from the unassuming entrance. The sanctuary then opens up into over five miles of trails past frog ponds and vernal pools, fern-filled forests and open meadows. There are all sorts of birds, turkeys, owls, plus deer, bunnies, frogs, and all sorts of other things. In all, there are 400 acres in this sanctuary.
The trails are open daily from dawn to dusk. The visitor’s center with its restrooms is open Tuesdays to Sundays noon to 4pm. The sanctuary is run by the Massachusetts Audubon Society.
Most of the trails are easy walking, but there are some sections where you have to cross streams by rough rocks. So depending on your mobility issues, you might reach points where you need to turn around. Because of the birds nesting near trails, they do NOT allow dogs or hunting.
