The Sippican Lands Trust (SLT) is excited to partner once again with the Marion Council on Aging for upcoming walks this spring, summer and fall. The walks will showcase the wide variety of properties and trails managed by SLT and feature a theme for each walk. Please meet at the property’s parking area a few minutes before the walk starts.

Led by SLT board member Diane Cook, the May walk will be titled “Sit, Watch, Listen” at Peirson Woods. A quiet walk in the woods, remember to bring binoculars to observe some of the creatures around you.

Located at the head of Blankenship Cove, Peirson Woods is 30 acres of woods and wetland with a cart trail leading from Point Road to the head of the marsh looking out over the Cove. On a clear day Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and the northern Elizabeth Islands can be seen.

The parking area for Peirson Woods is located off of Point Road approximately 1.4 miles south of the intersection of Route 6 (Wareham Road) and Point Road in Marion.

Cost: Free
