Oak Knoll is a Massachusetts Audubon Society property that offers about one and a half miles of trails. There are two loops connected by the main trail. The first, the Puddingstone Loop, winds through an area of oaks and stone walls. The second loop wraps around the shores of Lake Talaquega, a haven for local birds including ducks and geese. The lake in summer months tends to filled with lily pads. The main trail runs from the parking area back to the pond passing over a Thacher Brook and through an area of swamp dominated by red maples. The main trail has several sections of boardwalks through the swampy areas. The property also offers a small meadow, a marsh, and a visitors center.
