This trail has a variety of environments. Different sections of this trail feature completely different scenery and vibes ranging from woodsy to forest ponds to farmland to overgrown areas, meandering hills to ravine to open sun plains. Trail is absolutely lovely. Note that there are parts with very narrow walking path and/or overgrown sides but very navigable. Trail may be difficult to navigate at times so keep your AllTrails trail map handy!Show more

A pretty good trail for a long run. There are many intersecting trails, not always well marked, so you need to pay close attention to your route on the app as you go.Show more

This is another hike in the Callahan State Park. This area of the park is more 'wilderness' trails. They tend to be narrower trails with steeper and rockier sections. Overall, still fairly easy hiking. There are several trails criss-crossing the area, all fairly well-marked, however trail names are often difficult to find. There are a few maps located along the trails to help orientation. Beebe pond as well as the meadow above the pond are very picturesque.Show more

3-4 mile hike through Callahan State Park, Framingham, MA This is just one of many routes that are possible through Callahan State Park. There are trails that criss-cross throughout the park and the adjacent Sudbury Conservation Land. The first trail - Pipeline - is probably the steepest trail along the hike. The trails are well marked, and there are trail maps placed through-out to help. Most of the trails are wide and pretty level, and dogs are allowed on many of them. The trails wind through both pine and hardwood forests. There is one small pond and several wetland areas to explore. Don't be surprised if you come across some dogs, especially around the pond. Also, horseback riding is allowed within the park. It is possible to follow the Pipeline trail directly back the the parking lot and avoid the Baiting Brook section. Some sections of the Baiting Brook trails are narrower than those found elsewhere in the park.Show more
