Fields Pond Aububon Center - Lake Shore Trail

I hiked the Lake Shore Trail at Fields Pond Audubon Center this morning before work.  I accessed the trail via the mowed path behind the visitor center.  The mowed path leads to a wooden boardwalk leading through a grassy wetland and then the Lake Shore Trail.

The Lake Shore Trail provides views of Fields Ponds.  The end of the trail is not marked and connects to a well defined trail that continues to Brewer Lake.

Mosquitoes were plentiful and the tall grass provides a good habitat for ticks, so proper dress and bug repellent are highly recommended.

Here is a map of my hike.

  1. We also take the loop trail up the hill, nice short hike, and a beautiful setting. These trails are also excellent in the winter for snow shoeing, we go often.
