Owned and managed by the Town of Yarmouth, Spear Farm Estuary Preserve is a scenic 55-acre property with diverse habitats, ranging from stately oaks and pine forest to the open salt marshes of the Royal River estuary, and a small freshwater pond with a fringing marsh. The preserve includes 1.6 miles of gentle, well-maintained trails over rolling, coastal terrain perfect for foot or ski travel and ideal for bird watching. There is an excellent picnic spot and overlook on the pond’s northern shore, as well as on the edge of the salt marsh. In the winter the pond offers great skating opportunities, with attention to safety. Conservation Easements held by the Royal River Conservation Trust protect the property.
