The Hamlin Reservation

Hamlin Reservation

Entrance to the Hamlin Reservation on Argilla Rd. in Ipswich.

The Hamlin Reservation in Ipswich is a 135 acre former coastal farmland, with a rocky forested island surrounded by salt marsh, now owned by the Trustees of Reservations. A path begins from the small parking lot just off Argilla Road and takes you over a rocky dike through the marsh, continuing around Eagle Island. At the half-way point you can view Labor in Vain Creek  weaving through the salt marsh grass.
