There are marked walking trails located at the Reserve Headquarters, the Quashnet River area, South Cape Beach State Park, Abigail’s Brook, and Washburn Island (see Tour of the Reserve for locations). The following trail maps show the above mentioned trails on Reserve Property as well as a few notable trails in the surrounding area.
While enjoying our trails please take into account that dogs are not permitted on any beaches from April 1 – September 1. When and where dogs are permitted, they must always remain on leash. Also note that ticks are common on Reserve lands as everywhere in Massachusetts, so check yourself carefully. You can pick up further information about Lyme Disease (transmitted by deer ticks) at Reserve Headquarters. Poison ivy is also common. Be able to identify and avoid it.
