The High Street Ball fields in Bellingham, MA appear to simply be a recreation area for organized sports in Bellingham. But when you venture to the back of the fields, you’ll find bat boxes and on the far right you’ll discover an opening in the trees that provides access to trails that will take you to a lovely spot along the Charles River. The path is, for the most part, quite easy walking. The biggest challenge is the mosquitoes. Except in late fall and winter, be prepared to use bug repellent!
