About Meadow Bog Pond Conservation Area
The Meadow Bog Pond Conservation Area in South Orleans comprises two acquisitions: a 1993 gift by Rachia Heyelman of 1.8 acres and joint purchase of 6.6 acres in 2006 by OCT and the Town of Orleans, using Community Preservation Act funds. This land serves as a crucial wildlife corridor, linking 115 acres of protected land while simultaneously protecting the shores and water quality of two freshwater ponds: Sarah’s and Meadow Bog Ponds. It is valuable habitat for rare plants and animals, such as the sharp-shinned hawk, Eastern box turtle, and pink lady’s slipper. This trail is just under 1-mile in length and contains a number of steep hills.

From the intersection of MA-28 and Main Street in Orleans, follow MA-28 toward Chatham for 2.5 miles. Turn left onto Quanset Road and veer right at the Y to stay on the road. Follow Quanset Road to trailhead on left (1.2 miles). There is a 1-2 car designated parking area on the corner, or you can park at the Town Landing 200 yards farther down the road on the right.
