The Puffer Pond Loop Trail at the Assebet River National Wildlife Refuge in Maynard, Massachusetts is an easy 2.6 mile hike that encompasses three different trails and runs around Puffer Pond. The hike is easy and mostly flat, crosses a couple if wooden foot bridges across the pond, and then tucks away in the woods on the western portion of the loop. The three trails include the Puffer Pond Trail, Otter Alley Trail, and Harry's Way Trail.

Along the trail, you get plenty of scenic views of Puffer Pond and some interesting bunker structures on the north side of the pond. This trail can be buggy during the Summer months, so prepare with plenty of bug spray, or plan this hike in the shoulder season to skip the bugs.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
