Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: We parked on the west side of Everett St., off Upland Rd. There is no parking area there, but it seems that one can park there if one takes care not to block the street. The official parking is at the Visitor Center at the western end of Moose Hill Parkway.

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: None worth mentioning. Boardwalks over the swampy areas.

Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary is similar to Blue Hills and Middlesex Fells - not as much elevation gain/loss, but a few other features, such as vernal pools and a red maple swamp. There was one very short section with easy rock hopping across minor mud, but the rest of the route was completely dry today.
