Mass Audubon's Rocky Hill Wildlife Sanctuary is located on the outskirts of the city in Groton, Massachusetts. Spread over acres of land, this wooded wildlife refuge is a paradise for nature lovers. There are hiking trails that will take you to the heart of this sanctuary. As the land is full of ledges and large boulders, amatuer hikers will find it challenging enough to make things interesting. A small pond surrounded by towering trees look picturesque in spring. Home to around 100 bird species, moose, beavers, and porcupines are also often sighted in the woods. Consider coming here with your loved ones and find yourself in the lap of nature.

Mass Audubon's Rocky Hill Wildlife Sanctuary Reviews & Ratings
Fantastic! Amazing rock formations, huge strangely shaped boulders, caves, wetlands, scenic lake and woodland trails. A magical place.
There are no facilities at this hiking trails. When we were there, between the five of us we took 22 ticks off us!! It is tick infested! So check for ticks after you go.
I went hiking here yesterday (July 7, 2018) for the first time. It is a nice wildlife sanctuary with well marked trails. Trails lead you to Rocky Hill, the shores of Lower Long Pond, swampland where great blue herons nest and the Chestnut Oak Loop. I went along most of the trails and they were from easy to moderate in difficulty. The spot on the shore of the pond was a great place to have lunch. There is a small parking lot but beware of the entrance from the road, the driveway is steeply paved and lower clearance vehicles could scrape the bottom of their vehicles. Other than that I had a great experience going here.
Great spot for viewing the Heron rookery
We couldn't figure it out. Grass was overgrown and quickly we ended up in somebody's backyard after walking under very powerful crackling electric lines.
