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.

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.

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.

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.

Sorry it took so long to respond. John's Pond is closest beach, fresh water. South Cape Beach closest salt water.
