This trail starts at the Longfellow Pond parking lot off Oakland St. The trail is a loop trail around the pond. Starting from the right side of the parking lot facing the pond, the trail gradually climbs to the old Hasting gravesite where you get a good view of the pond. The trail continues around the backside of the pond, crosses over Rosemary Brook at the dam, passes the remains of the Metropolitan Ice Company's storage house, and continues along the pond back to the parking lot. Trail is marked with purple arrows. Wellesley Trails Committee historically has held a Kids' Trails Day each fall at the Pond. Length of the loop trail is 0.8 mile.
