Re/Framing the View: Nineteenth Century American Landscapes

Harbor and Planting Island Views Walk

Sippican Lands Trust

Osprey Marsh is a 19.8-acre parcel of protected upland woods, wetlands and marshland offering spectacular water views of Planting Island Cove. The recently completed Osprey Marsh Boardwalk allows for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility. The trail consists of an 1,800-foot way that combines hard-surface segments with a wooden boardwalk and extends from the existing parking area on Point Road at Osprey Marsh, through the forest and wetlands, to a viewing platform on the cove. Bump outs with benches along the walkway provide places to rest and spaces for strollers and wheelchairs to pass. This trail is accessible for all.

Trailhead is located at 354 Point Rd, Marion, MA 02738

Parking for Osprey Marsh is located off Point Road approximately three miles south of the intersection of Route 6 (Wareham Road) and Point Road in Marion.

This program is being offered rain or shine. In the event of wet weather, wear protective clothing and good boots. In the case of dangerous conditions, we will notify participants of a cancellation 24-hours prior.

This program is being offered as a partnership between the Sippican Lands Trust and the New Bedford Whaling Museum in concert with the rotating exhibition Re/Framing the View: Nineteenth-Century American Landscapes.
