Named for the small ravine in which Galloway Brook flows, Cook’s Canyon was once an early 20th century tourist destination and is now a 60-acre wildlife sanctuary managed by the Mass Audubon Society. On the short easy trails look for signs of the extensive plantings, buildings, roads and ponds that once dominated the landscape. Follow the trail to a southeasterly viewing area where you can peer into the ravine or see the impressive waterfall where the brook flows over the dam. Or explore the seasonal Wildwood Trail to enjoy the wilder areas of the sanctuary.
