Squam Swamp

Getting There


Nantucket Conservation Foundation Property

Well-marked (and numbered) paths over roots, stumps, and boardwalks

Lots of shade, can be very wet and muddy during parts of the year

Some dogs

NOTE: This property is NOT open to dogs. However . . . many dogs go here.

Double Dip Options: Pair it with Squam Farm. To do so, stay on the main path. As you come upon marker number 38, start looking for an arrow telling you to continue to the left. If you take a right at the arrow instead, you will come out in the field on the Squam Farm walk.  

Take the Polpis Road heading out of town. Take a left onto the Wuawinet Road. Follow this Road until you see a NCF sign and parking lot  (about 1 1/2 miles in) on the right.

This is a fun, educational walk. There are little ponds, board walks, huge old trees and even at least one mockernut tree. Really a lot to see and enjoy the entire walk. Great walk if you have kids!

One main loop trail, there are educational numbered markers along the entire trail, marking points of interest, so you can't get lost.
