The heat of Massachusetts summer is upon us, so I was up at 6 this morning to meet my friend Jennifer for an early morning walk. I’d spotted what looked like a trail just over the Medway line in Holliston on Rt. 126, almost across the street from Fatima Shrine. We found a very small (2-car) parking area, pulled in and headed out on the trail.
Wenakeening Woods is a quiet trail, basically all woodland, relatively level, and mostly clear, except for one or two spots where trees have fallen across the trail.
We found some nice water views, old stone walls, and a structure that might have been a stone foundation in years gone by. The trails are marked, but even so we found ourselves confused about how to circle back to the trail where our car was.
All ended well, we found our way back, and here are some photos to give you a taste of what a pretty walk awaits. “Like” us on Facebook at “Easy Walks in Massachusetts” for updates about new trails and all things outdoors.
