A nice double loop out-and-back trek to the St. Stephen's Priory property that is now owned by Boston College (BC). There are a few trail off-shoots that lead down to the Charles River too which makes this hike really special. The bulk of the hike is on the Trustees Peter's Reservation property but enters the BC property on the 2nd loop. There are some private property signs on route but none around the priory. Careful crossing the road.

This is a really nice property. I was looking for a way to extend the distance, looking for 3 miles or so. The double loop got me more distance leveraging the Boston College property. Overall it's just a smaller property but quite nice especially since you have access to the Charles River.
