About this Location

Lincoln Woods Wildlife Sanctuary offers a small dose of nature in the heart of Leominster. The sanctuary’s trail system ranges from level to short slopes with smooth to uneven surfaces.

Trails pass through mature woodlands that include several seasonal breeding ponds (known as vernal pools) for Wood Frogs and Spotted Salamanders. In early spring, amphibians migrate in large numbers to the sanctuary’s numerous vernal pools during a natural phenomenon known as “Big Night.”

Lincoln Woods is an important resting spot for migrating birds in an otherwise urban environment.
