Isolated property, far from the craziness of downtown Freeport. We wanted some quiet and solitude, and that's what we got. We took the ridge trail, about 1.6 mile. Well marked except in two places, near the bench loop and near the cabin clearing where we had to search out the next blaze and consult the map, but no big deal.... More

Our hotel host recommended this, which we appreciated. Walk from town on fairly busy road, but doable. Scenic area, waterfall, old mill stone dam interesting. Not much wildlife, especially for a bird sanctuary, and a trail map would have been helpful. Plenty of apples on the ground, though. Just when we were about to turn back after a good ways... More

Our walk lasted about an hour through thick woods, some grown up fields with grass paths, out to a stream. Lovely area. There are picnic tables and toilet facilities.

It's not for everyone. But if you are looking for a pleasant place for a stroll or a picnic, this would fit the bill. It is within easy reach of downtown freeport and is one of many places worth exploring in town while you are not shopping.

This is a nature sanctuary first and foremost and its spartan visitor facilities reflect that purpose. Access is by a short dirt road. Parking is on a hardpan gravel lot. Public use is free. A few picnic tables are located nearby. A trailhead box may hold trail maps or may be empty. The trails are well enough marked with painted... More

We were looking forward to a nice hike around the sanctuary. Unfortunately, it seems so few people visit, the trails are mostly grown over, with vines, sticker branches and poison ivy everywhere. We hike so we are not babies. This place could be really nice with a little TLC and trail maintenance.
