Start at the Wellesley College parking lot across Rte 16. Cross Rte 16 and enter the College. Stay on paths heading towards the Water. Path leaves Wellesley College for a while, runs through private property, and re-enters the College again. Starting in Rte 16 will give a full 3 mile walk. Very pretty.

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.
