Walk off your Thanksgiving meal and spend the morning outdoors at one of Barrington's hidden gems, the Johannis Wildlife Preserve, 32 acres of woodlands, open fields, and saltwater marshes on the Palmer River.
Johannis is maintained and protected by the Barrington Land Conservation Trust and normally closed to the public. This is a wonderful opportunity to view this special property and enjoy time with family and friends.
This trail can be wet, so protective shoes are recommended.
