Nice, quiet out-and-back trek to the St. Stephen's Priory property that is now owned by Boston College. There are a few trail off-shoots that lead down to the Charles River too which makes this hike extra special. The bulk of the hike is on the Trustees Peter's Reservation property. Careful crossing the road.

Nice, quiet trek over to the Saint Stephen's Priory. The trail follows the Charles River in spots with opportunities to go down to the water. The priory property is now owned by Boston College but there are no signs indicating "private property" once you get over that way. There is another loop option that would have you go out the priory entrance road then cut back in on a trailhead about halfway down their driveway. I might try that next time. You can also park at Bridge Street and enter via the trailhead over there. Enjoy!
