A trail through the middle of the Punkhorn's huckleberry carpeted pitch pine forest.

Features Birding · Fall Colors · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Open year round.

Description

The Deep Punkhorn Trail extends from Punkhorn Road through the middle of the Punkhorn merging finally with Squantum Path. This gentle trail skirts along the ridges of the nob and kettle terrain of the Punkhorn providing a wonderful view of abandoned cranberry bogs and secluded hollows. Though not marked, the trail is distinct and easy to follow.

Flora & Fauna

The Punkhorn is filled with pitch pines, oaks, swamp maples, huckleberry, winterberry, blueberry, swamp azaleas, may flowers and bearberry. You may run into a deer, grouse, foxes, coyotes and, if you're lucky, an elusive hermit thrush.
