Harvard, Massachusetts

Hike along the Nashua River and the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge

9.5 Miles Total - 0 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Gustavo Quiros

Wildlife abound in this conservation area. Listen to and watch for birds and other critters as you amble along. 

Park in the lot on Tank Road to access the Nashua River Trail. Keep your eyes peeled for turtles, chipmunks, birds, and other wildlife! This trail is open from April to October. 

The trail can become flooded and muddy after a rain/ snow, so for a shorter alternative to the 9.5 miles, you can take the Riverside to Turnpike Trail for a quick 2-mile loop around the area.
