The Trustees of the Reservation provide a wonderful place to wander through open fields, into woodlands, then along a lane through the woods that feels as though it was a cart-path from long ago. There are stone walls that angle off through the trees, stone foundations that hint of lives lived long ago, and at least in summer, lush ferns along the paths that remind us of how fleeting summer is in New England.
Be sure to look to the east when you reach the top of the fields, for views towards Boston. And “Like” us on Facebook at “Easy Walks in Massachusetts” for updates about new trails and all things outdoors.
