Overview

Offering 140 acres in the town of Norfolk, the reservation was once home to a commercial sawmill operation. A large, open field welcomes visitors and an old stone lined cow path leads to Stony Brook Pond and Teal Marsh where turtles and great blue herons are easy to spy. A boardwalk leads over Kingfisher Pond to a stand of beech trees, which is a popular spot for a wide variety of wildlife viewing. It is adjacent to the Massachusetts Audubon''s 116 acre Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary and is managed collaboratively with them.

Picnicking and pets are not allowed.
