Park on Cross Street in Holliston, near the rail trail. Start off south and go around the Old Bog area working your way further south to the Idylbrook Conservation Land area. Continue around the fields, take in the beaver dam and birds, then head north back up to Wenakeening Woods. Take a victory lap around the baseball field then back into the woods for the final leg back to the starting point and your car. Be on the lookout for deer!

A very pleasant property. You can combine a trail run or hike with some time on the Upper Charles rail trail. The rail trail was busy with soccer Mom's walking their dogs and gabbing away. I went south and just worked my way down to the Idylbrook property and playing fields. There are some wetlands, water fowl, and beaver dams to see on the way. Very nice overall. Then I continued clockwise back up to the Wenakeening Woods and some playing fields there. I did start my GPS in the woods so be aware of that. A nice trek for sure! Enjoy.
