Boyden Wildlife Refuge – Taunton

  • Gertrude M. Boyden Wildlife Refuge
  • Cohannet Street, Taunton, MA
  • Trailhead: 41° 52’56.52″N, 71°7’42.08″W
  • Last Time Hiked: August 3, 2013
  • Approximate distance hiked: 2.4 miles
  • Easy with slight elevation


This morning I was joined by a few friends for a hike. Among them was our fearless 3 year old guide who led the way. Needless to say, there was no set or defined path to describe for this hike. We did however cover just about the entire wildlife refuge, and in some cases, twice. Some of the highlights of this property are the fragrance garden which at the time was blooming with bee balm and tiger lilies. We hiked through a dense pine grove as well as a river trail that followed the Three Mile River. We came across a covered bridge as well as a log cabin. We also made our way around a meadow of tall grass. There are about a mile and a half of trails here, but we had hiked slightly more than that. We came across a few squirrels and some butterflies. We could hear plenty of birds and also heard a frog. (Side Note: Our trail guide fell asleep on the way home!)

I did not find a trail map online.
