A nice flat loop trail with plenty of parking at the soccer fields parking area. Route consists of paved road and off-road. Great views along river trail with nice options to explore the interior areas. This route includes an option out to Dover Road and the bridge over the Charles River (great views).

Nice easy walk along the Charles River. Horticulture garden was closed so we’ll have to back.

Nice views of water. Trails about 5 feet wide. The loop close to Sudbury trail was washed out due to rain of late. Go early in the morning and we saw about six people - so you can socially distance.

Tried to get a 4+ miler in on the trails and succeeded. I've never done much with the side trails so ventured in there today and took in some of the Mass Horticulture Society stuff near the soccer fields. I keep discovering more and more in the MA Hort area. Very cool walk thru Weezie's today. Check it out!

Very pretty, flat. With some side trails the distance would be good.

Nice flat loop trail. Tried to make a 3+ mile run out of this and succeeded! Parked near the soccer fields then went clockwise along the river trail then did the horseshoe loop. Passed down the private driveway to Dover Road to get to the bridge. I like this loop, got to 3.5 miles.
