For most of the trail you will be following the Bay Circuit Trail - Section 8. From parking lot follow salamander trail until BCT junction. Continue straight entering BSA reservation. Follow ridge and bear right to Tippling Rock - good views of the north of Boston on clear days. Continue on the Bay Circuit Trail - white rectangular blazes. Cross Brimstone Lane (you will see a parking lot there) and re-enter the woods. Walk northwest on this trail. At the first, and second intersections turn left. At this point you will be leaving the BCT for a trail that will conduct you to a dam. This dam is known as Ford's Folly, as it was built by Henry Ford, but it failed to hold water. After you reach the area, you can return via the same trail system, or you can decide to take a walk to the Nobscot Mountain, and return via another of the numerous trails in this area.Show more
