Explore the most popular dogs on leash trails near Foxborough with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Bonus points for the fact that I didn't see a single other person the whole time! I've never been out here before (despite living in town for 22 years) so I'll try to give a pretty through review.

The parking area is pretty easy to find, which I actually wasn't expecting. Its a gravel turnout with a sign. The trailhead is across the street; I didn't realize that until I looked at my app and saw I was going the wrong way so I thought I'd mention it lol. The first part of the trail is under phone lines and has no shade and pretty tall grass. It's not a super long stretch, but it would still probably be more pleasant not to hit it when its hot and sunny. There's also a lot of tall grass, so I'd recommend wearing long pants.

You'll probably need to track where you're going (I use the app) to find the turnoff towards the woods. I think if you went counter clockwise it was maybe a bit more obvious, but it wasn't very clear in either direction and the trail is definitely a lot more overgrown than the part under the phone wires. Once you get into the woods its a nice walk and the trail is pretty obvious. Its SUPER buggy though (I think I accidentally swallowed 3 of them) so definitely bring plenty of bug spray with you. Coming out of the woods, you'll be back into tall grass and once you're on the trail its not too bad to stay on, but its definitely not very worn down.

Overall it was a nice quiet, short hike and even though it wasn't the most well marked, it wasn't too hard to navigate if I looked at my phone periodically. Also, while the trail is dog friendly I'd definitely make sure you check for ticks after. I have a little dog so even on the trail, there were places that the grass was over his head.

Not ideal but do-able for a stroller, very nice loop, will be much better between September-November when the cranberry bogs are in full. Very nice all around tho and very easy to walk around

Sweet little trail. Great for kids and out of town guests to show them the bog. I don’t bring my stroller on this one.

great for kids!!

My 3 year old can’t get enough of this trail.

decent trails, fairly well marked. have been a few times and will return to keep exploring.

Really beautiful trail. It's really interesting to see the cranberry bog. This is a working farm. I'll have to return in the fall to see the berries when they are ripe.

Great trail for kids. We do this at least once a year. It’s short, but offers a lot in that short walk. Cranberry bogs, large turtles, fish and New England tree varieties.

I tend not to like walks under power lines. However once away from the power lines, this becomes a real nice outing. Prince Philips Cave and King Philips Rock. Nice destination walk.

Loved it! Perfect kid friendly hike!

This trail is unmarked. I followed the power lines for 20 minutes and never saw an entrance. Frustrating.
