My happy place. Beautiful lake, waterfall/dam, birding, topiary, boardwalk, lake outlooks and chairs at the lake. I do it often for a local walk. Watch the rocks and roots, I've wiped out. So pretty at peak foliage and after a heavy sticky snow . See the wellesley tower from across the lake. If you're lucky you'll get a bell concert. Stop by the botanical gardens in the spring and greenhouses as well
A gem

Very nice area to walk, hike, trail run. Take in Paintshop Pond too, on the far side up on the ridge. Really nice over there. Enjoy!

Beautiful trail for walking, running, hiking. Peaceful and boasts lots of greenery, wild flowers and a shimmering lake. Mixture of sun and shade spots along the trail. There are areas of tree roots and narrow passes scattered throughout.. The only downfall is that most dog owners DO NOT leash their dogs dispite posted signs that state dogs must be leashed. Please be courteous and leash your dogs!

Single loop. Not well marked at the start heading north from Wellesley College admissions office. Nice over all.

Abuts the Wellesley College campus. The trail is partially on Wellesley College land (some is private property, but you are allowed to use the trail as long as you don't stray). Some parts of trail are narrow, which can make running difficult if dog walkers are on the trail. Some parts of trail are also very rooty, which can make running dangerous if lighting is bad. You get great views of the college, of topiary at the swanky Hunnewell property. Can be accessed from the college (there is parking) or by jumping a stone wall on Pond Road. A very popular and nice trail for walking/running.
