Abbott’s Mill Nature Center features beautiful trails that take the visitor through a lush deciduous and Atlantic White Cedar woodlands. Sections of the trail include a handicap-accessible boardwalk that follows a clear coastal plain stream to open meadows, picnic area, and a Garden for Wildlife idea garden. A historic working gristmill (currently closed for repair) and its water source, a 20-acre pond lend a sense of the rich human history of the area. We also have kayak/SUP rentals by reservation. Our Visitor Center has a live animal collection, “please touch” and animal displays, and a kids’ corner with puzzles and stuffed animals. Abbott’s sits on a 376-acre piece of Milford Millponds Nature Preserve. The site is open to the general public and trails are pet-friendly. Parking is available by our visitor center.
