MASHPEE – We visited a small portion of the Mashpee National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday. After a hike and a few turns, we realized we better turn back before we were to become so lost that no one would find us until April.
The Mashpee National Wildlife Refuge is enormous.
It “encompasses 5,871 acres and is the second largest accessible, open space on the Cape; the first being the National Seashore,” according to Friends of Mashpee National Wildlife Refuge, a nonprofit organization that is one of nine partners that collaborate on managing the refuge.
We parked off of Red Brook Road and began walking. The sunshine on the woods made for a spectacular hike and the near-60 degree temperature was nice too. All in all, a successful hike and another highly recommended outing.
