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

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.ReplyDelete
