Russell Sawmill Pond Conservation Area
The Russel and Sawmill Preserve is a 53-acre tract of land located in North Plymouth. Trails wind throughout the Preserve and provide pedestrian access to both Russel Pond and Sawmill Pond. Both of these ponds are excellent fishing locations and are seasonally stocked with trout by the Massachusetts Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. Trails south of the ponds wind through a unique upland habitat comprised of old growth mixed forest. Towering white pines are found throughout the Preserve and create a understory that is mostly devoid of vegetation; a feature not typically found in southeastern Massachusetts.
