NSRWA Walking Club – Two Mile Farm and the Jose Carreiro Woodland
Saturday, February 10, 2024

Join guest host Irene Bilodeau as we explore Two Mile Farm and the Jose Carreiro Woodland on February 10th. Irene is an avid traveler and hiker. She is one of our Walking Club Co-Coordinators, and loves exploring numerous trails on the South Shore.

The Trustees (formerly Trustees of Reservations) acquired Two Mile Farm, a 68-acre property, in 1995. Narrow trails and wide cart paths pass through a white pine woodland, with occasional hemlock, oak and beech. Look for the remains of old stone walls. The trails slope down to the marsh’s edge, presenting broad views of the North River and Stetson Meadows. Watch for deer grazing in the salt marsh or in the forest. Numerous small mammals call this woodland home. Listen for the chattering of marsh wrens. They are commonly observed in this section of the marsh and all the way up to the freshwater marshes in Pembroke and Hanover.

The Jose Carreiro Woodland consists of 11 acres of Marshfield Conservation land abutting Two Mile Farm. This property is named for Jose Carreiro, who served as Chair of Marshfield’s Community Preservation Committee and was actively involved in protecting this small but beautiful parcel from development. A bench at a spot overlooking the river valley stands in his honor. Pine, oak and beech forest give way to salt marsh and the North River. Oldham Brook runs along the edge of this property before it empties into the North River. Look for it on both sides of the parking area’s cul de sac.

Parking can be found at the end of Maryland Street – off of Union Street in Marshfield. Click here for a map.

While we love dogs, NSRWA’s walks are dog-free in consideration for all participants. Please leave your pooches at home.
