The Ridges Sanctuary is an unique and very special piece of protected land. The woods, ridges and swales are home to a unique population of arboreal conifers, insects, mosses, pitcher plants and orchids. The network of trails is shady and immensely peaceful, with the occasional opening onto a shallow swales of blowing grass and shallow waterways. There is something both exotic and mysterious about walking The Ridges. Note: If you have visited in past years, the entrance location has changed. There is a fancy new nature center, but we prefer parking at 2301 Ridges Road,  near the beach.
