The Agawam River Trail, located at the end of Knowles Avenue in East Wareham, is a wonderful place to explore! With beautiful views, a riverside loop trail, and access to the Agawam River to launch a kayak or canoe, there’s no telling what you might see. Common species that are observed on the property include deer, coyotes, bald eagles, osprey, great blue herons, herring, and swans. The property consists of several parcels of land that include ecosystems like forested uplands, river frontage, and a freshwater tidal marsh. The Agawam River Trail has been designated as a BioMap Core Habitat and Supporting Natural Landscape, Living Waters Core and Supporting Habitat, Priority Habitat for Rare and Endangered Species, and a Riverine Priority Vegetation Community by the Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program (NHESP). This property provides a habitat for four globally rare species, as well as other state and federally listed species.

Whether you visit the property to take a peaceful kayak trip down the river, catch a glimpse of an osprey with a fresh meal, appreciate the tranquility of the tall forest, or simply to relax and recharge in nature, we hope you enjoy your time at the Agawam River Trail!

Note: Please respect trail closures and use trails as marked to minimize disturbance and allow for regrowth and restoration of the native habitat.
