Spear Farm Estuary Preserve, Yarmouth


  • Preserve Size: 55 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 2 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: salt marsh, Royal River, woods, a freshwater pond

Yarmouth’s Spear Farm Estuary Preserve offers a salt marsh, views of Royal River, idyllic picnic spots, woods, a freshwater pond and more than two miles of trails. I am definitely returning to this 55-acre preserve when the snow melts, if it ever does. The trails aren’t as well marked as they could be, but the trails are easy to follow.

Directions: From Route 88 (Spring Street) turn southeast onto Bayview Street, cross the bridge over I-295, and go 0.9 mile to a small parking area on the right, set back from the road with a small barn and kiosk at the edge of the field.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
