The next place I visited was Pegan Cove Park, which is also on the shores of Lake Cochituate. The parking can be found on Washington Avenue between Bellevue Road and Hunters Hill Court. The rough path I took is highlighted below in pink.
Along the way, I happened to spot a garter snake slithering away from me, and when it stopped to hide in the grass, I was able to capture a few pictures of it.

After a good burger lunch at the Met Bar and Grill in the Natick Mall, I headed to the Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary. The route I took is shown below, highlighted in pink.
From the parking lot I followed the Marsh Trail. At this point, I did not know how to read my map. I intended to find the walkway across the wetlands, and thought I had found it while being on the All-Persons Trail. The views I got there were not very impressive.

Rocky Narrows, the parking area being around 100 Forest Street, close to its junction with Lake Street and East Goulding Street. The route I took is highlighted below.
From here, I headed back the oother way to Checkpoint 15, and on all the way to checkpoint 17. Here, I went to the Rocky Narrows Overlook, where there wasn't really much to see, except like at Leominster State Forest in Westminster, I was always one misstep away from falling down to my right in this stretch of the trail. Unfortunately, after passing through this treacherous area, I got lost, but somehow I managed to emerge at checkpoint 21 sometime later. From here, I was able to head all the way back to my car.
The last place I visited today was the Leland Mill Pond. This nondescript place was a little hard to find, being on Mill Street between Hollis Street and Nason Hill Road. When I finally found it, it was nearly dark, but I still managed to capture nice pictures of the pond itself and the nearby dam.
With that, I was done for the day.
