Visiting Stony Brook Reservation
in Norfolk, Mass.
and photo by Eric H.
Stony Brook Reservation in the southwest Boston
of Norfolk, Mass., is a true New England hidden gem offering an
extensive boardwalk system and hiking trails leading to water views and
marsh land and -- surprise -- a wildlife sanctuary with muskrats, great blue herons, canada
geese, black ducks, wood ducks and of course, frogs and turtles. While
Stony Brook is well-known to locals -- especially school systems
looking to go beyond books and into the "field" -- this great New
England destination (expertly and pleasantly run by the Mass Audubon
Society) would serve tourists well as a peaceful, scenic locale with
"New England" written all over it. This isn't the type of place
mentioned up front in the major travel guides, but deserves to be as
the sheer beauty and interest of the area is every bit as appealing as
more popular scenic New England spots.
Reservation, 108 North St., Norfolk, Mass. Tel. 508-528-3140.
