There are three trail heads. One in Marlborough and two in Southborough.

I love this hike up the drumlins through wetlands and young forest.

Hidden gem! Hiked for over an hour with my dog and didn't see one person. To avoid construction you must make a loop with plantation trail.

Probably great in the winter. Currently a section is closed due to construction. There is lots of poison ivy. Our group of three got 6 dog ticks. There were also bug bites from few mosquitos and lots of horse flies. There were some nice raspberries and blackberries at the top of Cedar hill.

Does anyone know what that abandoned building you come across at the end of cedar hill trail used to be?
