This is a top notch bird and animal sanctuary with hiking, canoeing and wonderful birding. It is at the end of the Miller River coming out into the Connecticut River Oxbow. There are forests and fields to enjoy, and lots of educational programs for adults...More

For beauty, serenity, and diverse wildlife, this sanctuary run by the Massachusetts Audubon Society is hard to beat. There are miles of trails through woodlands, marshes, and field, along lakes and rivers. Unfortunately (perhaps understandably) dogs are prohibited. This is a sweet, quiet way to...More

Loved the shaded paths by the Mill river. The bird observatory station (up a 25' winding staircase) is cool. What is amazing is the see the "1936 flood high-water mark" sign almost at the top of the staircase.

Came here with my son in his stroller and other family with young children. We strolled along Mill River and enjoyed a lunch on the picnic tables in the park. There is a $4 admission fee but that seems like a suggestion. We gave some...More

Easy access and natural beauty in the midst of Northampton and Easthampton. Easy parking and a comfortable visitors' center. Trails are easy and there's boating opportunities, too. Always people enjoying the natural beauty. Includes several habitats not widely available, like grasslands and riparian forest.
