Explore the most popular wild flowers trails in Callahan State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

One of the longest loops hikes you can do on the south side of Callahan. The trails are well marked and maintained but some of them get very close to roads and neighborhoods, which kinda ruined the nature experience for me at times. You can easily avoid these by taking little short cuts.

Beautiful nature trails teeming with wildlife. You get a sense of truly being in nature out here in the Sudbury Valley conservation land. Lived in the area my whole life and have just begun exploring the trails here. This is a place for people who truly appreciate nature and wildlife. I passed many mountain bikers on my journey as well as dog walkers. A lot of people enjoy horseback riding on these trails (fresh manure along the trails), but most people are here simply to observe the wildlife that calls the area home. Bring a camera/binoculars, bug spray, and a snack to enjoy by the pond.

Easy Saturday morning run through Callahan! The trails are well marked and clear. My dog loves this park as there are plenty of other dogs for her to play with as we run along the trail. Best to have the map downloaded and refer to it to make sure you are following the correct trail. Or if you are a gambler, just take whatever turn suits your fancy! They all intersect at different points through the park. Enjoy!

I might have started at wrong trail head but didn’t find a pond 1 small steam lots of cars in parking lot decent trails but not much to see

Great loop with moderate elevation gains. Very well marked, but a little confusing at some trail junctions. Mostly stay on Backpacker and Bear Paw with a few exceptions.

Well labeled and easy trail in the beautiful fall weather. We saw ducks, geese, a woodpecker, as well as reddish squirrels and chipmunks.

Very enjoyable hike, the trail crosses steep hills, mellow valleys, meadow forests and more. All in just 3 miles. Beebe pond is a beautiful and quiet spot. There are almost never any people on the trails in this part of Callahan, making it a great place to be alone with nature. Be sure to bring bug spray. Turn your AllTrails tracker on because the trails beyond Beebe pond are not always marked and it can be easy to wander in the wrong direction.

Easy to moderate trail on north side of Callahan. Nice, pleasant place to spend an hour or two. There are lots of side trails and loops that can be added to increase length of hike.

Open, clearly marked trails. Different landscapes to see from forest to meadow to lake-side - mostly shaded. Fun hike with the kids.

Nice trails with some good moderate up and down. Wildflowers, lilly pads, horses, and ferns.

One of many fun trails at Callahan State Park. Eagle Pond is a beautiful spot. There are some good rocks to sit on, you will probably even see some fish. The trails are very well marked and fun to explore. This is also a good spot to bring your dog for a walk.

Lots of variety in the terrain

An easy-to-moderate 1-1.5 hour loop that takes you past the lovely little Beebe Pond. Trail is well-maintained for the most part. Many confusing junctions, so pay attention to your map or AllTrails. Beautiful open forest crossed by the remains of many old rock walls from when this was farm land in the 19th century.

Backpacker South to Pine Hill Loop to Bear Paw to Broadmeadow St. Great cardio.

No trail maps were available at the North gate, and the signage was poor. There were many side trails and it was not always obvious which way to go. The EveryTrail GPS guide often had a problem getting readings. The dogs had a great time even though we never made it to the lake.
