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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
