Lots of fun! There are some great views on this trail; however I was constantly surrounded by a group of gnats, so that was annoying.

Tried to get to 500' elevation gain over at Cedar Hill. Parked at the top and ran up and down 3x. Almost did it. Nice way to get the blood flowing!!!

Tried to max out my elevation gain today and managed to get to 500' on this trek. Nice day in the woods, nice visibility from Cedar Hill and the cooler is still in the hill --- see if you can find it. Gooday!

I keep my honeybees on the farm here and took a jog around to check on them and see what forage, if any, might be available now that my friendly farmer has left me. Found lots of cherry blossoms blooming which is great as I think the bees will love these. The trees are in wet areas too so the nectar should be flowing. Say hi to my bees if you're over that way!

Another great trail run thru here on a really nice spring day (yea, May Day!). Parked way down on the promontory overlooking the Great Charles River! Sweet!

Some parts of the map aren’t correct, but it’s a super user friendly trail, so you’ll easily make your own loop.

good trail. only saw a couple other people. well maintained. lots of maps. feels pretty isolated in the middle, despite being so close to the city. nice pines and leaf cover.

A real treat! Started south on the Bay Circuit Trail then took in the Charles River at the horseshoe. Crossed Main Street next and visited with all those restful souls in the historic Medfield State Hospital Cemetery. Continued north to the Bill Martin Field but no airplanes were being flown today. Returned via the colonial era hay fields that surround the area. Very nice area!

It’s a tarred road, it not a walk in the woods

Really nice loop. Some bushwacking involved but you can avoid this if you want. A really impressive property. Go for it! Enjoy!

Plenty of parking at the Wheelock School. Started down paved road to right of soccer fields. Worked my way over to the town water well then turned back, no Mine Brook crossing in that area. Continued to south side of property thwarted initially by a NY-New Haven train coming down tracks. Crossed tracks then took in most of the trails, including the Bay Circuit trails, offered including the "rabbit ears" single track off-shoot trails. Nice, flat with some small hills property with open fields, GREAT for dog walking!

Was ok. Not really challenging but nice nonetheless. Be sure to check out all the trees that the beavers toppled. Pretty cool.

Nice way to take in both Rocky Woods and the Trustees Fork Factory Brook properties. Be careful crossing the street!

A "just do it" kind of day with Tropical Storm Jose just off the coast of New England throwing plenty of wind and rain our way. The trees were swaying and the rain was pouring but it didn't dampen my spirits much. No views from Cedar Hill and all the wildlife was hunkered down so it was just a nice trail run/walk.

A nice trek for sure. It's always cool to see what the beaver's are up to on Echo Lake. They have downed about 50 trees to make their home, amazing. I took a little detour up Cedar Hill Knoll to check out the gorge. I love that area. Got ambushed by a little golden retriever...so cute!

What a great property. Did a nice loop today and enjoyed catching up with all the hard work the beavers are doing on the pond. Wow, they have sharp teeth. Continued up Mine Hill and around and then up Cedar Hill for a bit more exercise. Came down the Cedar Hill and Noanet trails past the camping spots back to my car. A perfect day!

Had a great run today. Parked out in the field near the entrance as some construction is going on currently at the Hospital property. Ran down the trail leading to the Charles River then around and up to the Dover-Sherborn wilderness X/C track. Came around the east side of the Medfield State Hospital property and passed the water tower on my way down to the soccer fields. Kind of wet and mucky today but, as usual, a great trail run.

This is a really nice, quiet area. Adjacent to the organic community farm, this property is managed by the Trustees of Reservations. There is ample parking on the Rocky Woods side of the property, be careful crossing the road as cars come flying by. I keep a few honeybee hives on the edge of this property. It's safe to walk past them just try and stay out of the honeybees flight path. It's nice to walk all the way down to the mill site to see where our ancestors used to make pitchforks back in colonial times. There is also a nice prominent ledge with limited views over the marsh and down toward the farm. A small area but very nice!
