Wilson Mountain Reservation Trail is a 1.7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Dedham, Massachusetts and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
dogs on leash
My dog loves this place in the summer. There is a little watering hole that a lot of people take their dogs swimming in. Technically, dogs have to be on leash but at this spot no one really cares as long as the dogs are behaving. I've been going here for years and only had one issue with the leash. Lots of little trails to go on. Nothing is too difficult.
Enchanting hike through pine and deciduous forest. I felt like I was in New Hampshire. The trails are are well-marked and there are lots of roots coming through in spots. the only downside was hearing the traffic going by on a nearby road for some of the hike. Lots of birds and mosquitoes so bring your bug spray.
Great hike fun to explore many different levels good for all!
Great local trail with nice little climb and if in the winter /fall you can see the city. Enjoyable flat trail on loop back with vernal pools and glacial erratics. Perfect for kids and dogs.
Fun trail. Pretty easy for our 6 year old kiddos and fun with big boulders to climb. There are good short cuts off the main long path for a bail out. Lots of dogs and families.
We got lost at the beginning, but then we had lots of fun and the kids really enjoyed it. It's an easy trail for the winter. I can't wait to hike it in the summer.
Nice, well-marked trail with great views/scenery. Good for a quick hike....start from the left entrance for a more challenging climb to the peak.
