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.

Wonderful trail till needing to turn out towards the road, hard to find the trail between the road and the pipeline. Overall trail condition was flattened dirt with occasional rocks and roots sticking out. Many wonderful birds flying and singing around and plenty of snakes in the area as well. Recommend some bug spray, but not the end of the world without.

Fun trip, lots of explorable areas, use caution some trails lead out to main roads, but otherwise a great take.

This is a great trail for people who want to get used to mtb. Technical in some places and easy in others.

I hiked this trail on a wet spring day when the ferns and leaves were emerging on the trail. The majority of the path was enjoyable to follow and walk. I followed this trail clockwise from the parking lot and it was fairly easy with only a few muddy spots. The dogs loved Eagle Pond and the water along the trail. However, if you follow the path from the Pipeline Trail towards Baiting Brook in the latter part of the hike, the trail badly needs maintenance and has several tree arbors across the trail. I would recommend taking the Pipeline Trail back to your car.

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!

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.

First to Review

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.
