Broad Cove – Dighton


I decided to do some post-work exploratory hikes this afternoon in the Dighton area. I had not found much information on-line on the hikes in this area except for a couple newspaper articles. So off I went in exploration mode. The first hike in the area I attempted was Broad Cove. The trail which starts from a small parking area on Hart Street is the handy work of a Boy Scout Eagle Project. The trail follows an old railroad bed for a mile passing areas of farms and wetlands to the right and residences to the left. The trail is wide in most places switching back and forth from grass to dirt. The trail ends at a small peninsula overlooking Broad Cove. There are a couple benches here if you choose to linger. I then retraced my steps back to the car. I did come across several species of birds here including robins, red winged blackbirds, ducks, and geese.


I did not find a trail map on-line.

    Well you can’t walk 2 miles anymore. Blocked off barely even a half mile in.

    • I’ve looked into it… I couldn’t find much about it on-line. The little I could find seems to be some sort of legal issue. Next time I am out near Dighton Town Hall I will stop and ask about it. Thank you Becky for the information. I will also make a note of it on the page.
