The Thayer Brook Conservation Area Trail is an easy, pleasant walk through the woods. The trail has many small rocks and roots. There is a large glacial erratic midway on the route, named Whale Rock because of its shape. From Whale Rock, the trail leads down to Thayer Brook and then uses boards to cross the brook. Once across the brook, the trail heads up to to Bennett Road.The trail is in excellent shape up to Whale Rock and is easy to follow from Whale Rock to Thayer Brook. As of July, 2019, the short section beyond the brook which heads to Bennett Road is not blazed and is very narrow. More details about this trail can be found at the Town of Wilbraham website at: https://www.wilbraham-ma.gov/index.aspx?NID=299

The GPS didn't bring me quite to the entrance. Had to drive a ways down and turn left. The sign was faded and easy to miss and there wasn't a very big parking area. Went by it twice. The trails were wide and well maintained. Some inclines, but nothing too steep or strenuous. The whale rock is vandalized, sadly. The bridges are rotten and in need of repair. A nice hike, though despite those things, would definately do again. 2.5 miles exactly.

Hard to locate at first. GPS brought me close to the entrance, but not quite there. The trails were wide, well maintained but riddled with horse poop throughout. The whale rock is vandalized with paint. Sadly. Some nice inclines, but nothing too strenuous. 2.5 miles exactly. Would do again.

8 hikers from the Wilbraham Hiking Club took the Thayer Brook Trails to Whale Rock and beyond to Bennett Road. The trails are in excellent condition with only a few short ferny patches. Horses share these trails, so watch out for horse manure. Lots of mushrooms along the way. Whale Rock is beginning to accumulate graffiti again. Hoping that future walkers and hikers will respect Whale Rock for the giant glacial erratic that it is, and not add any more graffiti to it.

The Wilbraham Hiking Club extended its hike past Thayer Brook all the way to Bennett Road. The trail is in excellent shape up to Thayer Brook. It is unmarked and very narrow in the section beyond the brook which heads to Bennett Road. We saw at least 10 different kinds of ferns along the way, and trees with ***dead*** gypsy moths.

Thayer Trail has beautiful woodland vistas with a soft, well maintained surface. The corner stone wall and Whale Rock are special sights. This is a great trail for a peaceful, not too rigorous but definitely challenging hike.

Easy hike. Fairly well marked. Impressive stone walls. Forest predominantly red oak, some grey birch, hickory, white pine, and another oak species that may be black oak.

16 hardy hikers from the Wilbraham Hiking Club microspiked their way through the ice and snow on the 0.6 mile "Easy Trail" loop at Thayer Brook and then took this equally icy 2 mile trail loop out to Whale Rock. A good time was had by all!

As always, a pleasant walk in the woods at Thayer Brook Conservation area. My friend and I also tried the new Easy Trail, which is a separate listing on AllTrails. Between the two trails, one has a 2.6 mile walk.
