At the Bristol Narrows is a little known preserve named Waypoyset. The long narrow property is heavily wooded and currently offers only a few trails. There is potential for a longer trail network. On this visit, birds were in abundance in the tall shrubs and thickets. Cardinals, blue jays, and nuthatches were seen. The shrubs were filled with berries and the remnants of milkweed pods. A visit to the trickling stream was also made. A local informed me that the other side of the stream is private property. There is parking down by the water at the end of Narrows Road. Be sure to park above the high tide line.
