Park at Pond Street dead end in Dover then head southwest on Wilson Swamp Trail. Continue into Medfield and transition onto the Woodcliff Hills Trail in the Parkinson Property to the ultimate destination of Hinckley Pond. Proceed around the pond and return via the same trails.

Very nice forest trek. Parked on quiet Pond Street and started down the back of Rocky Woods via the Wilson Swamp Trail. I never knew there was so much more to explore down into Medfield. I've been avoiding the trail turn-off in that direction for years thinking there wasn't much down that way. The Woodcliff Hills Trail brings you down into the Parkinson Property then on to the Medfield Park & Rec operated Hinckley Pond. Very nice marshy area on route and tranquil forests. A must do, must see!
