The forest has reclaimed this centuries-old pasture land along the Charles, where trails poke out to the river’s lovely views. A paddler’s favorite.
What makes Shattuck Reservation a special place?
This small reservation is made up of a forested upland neck of oak and pine overlooking a wet meadow and red maple swamp. Follow a trail lead to a lookout across the Charles River to Marshview Point, a 10-acre finger of upland nearly surrounded by floodplain.
Like adjacent Noon Hill, Shattuck Reservation’s old stone walls indicate that it was once 19th-century pasture. Look for a trail link across Causeway Street connecting Shattuck Reservation to Noon Hill.
Shattuck Reservation is part of a network of Trustees properties linked by the Charles River.
1.5 mile loop trail with side trails. Moderate walking. Trail extension across Causeway Street connects Shattuck Reservation to 4 miles of trails at Noon Hill.
When to Visit
Year-round, daily, sunrise to sunset. Allow a minimum of 1 hour, 2 hours if also visiting Noon Hill.
