Guided Walks & Events

New for the Fall - Self-Guided Walks

 The Wellesley Trails Committee’s guided walks scheduled for fall 2020 are canceled due to Covid-19 restrictions.  But… we would like you to take a self-guided walk in the woods without us.  And don’t forget to wear a mask and maintain social distancing, of course!

Boulder Brook Reservation Trail

Self-Guided Boulder Brook Walk (PDF)

Explore this open-space jewel and walk the woodland and meadow trails adjacent to the Bates School in Kelly Memorial Park and Boulder Brook Reservation.  See large glacial erratics, landscape carved by the glaciers and a scenic view from the top of Rocky Ledges.

 Centennial Reservation Trail

Self-Guided Centennial Walk (PDF)

Take a picturesque walk through rolling meadows to the top of Maugus Hill, one of the highest points in Wellesley.  Explore the conservation land purchased by the Town for Wellesley's 1981 Centennial Celebration, view the Great Blue Hills in Canton, and take our trail through MassBay Community College open space.

Morses Pond Trail

Self-Guided Morses Pond Walk (PDF)

Walk the trails along Morses Pond, a 102 acre pond and a source for our town water wells. View the pond, islands and wildlife. The walk will take you through a pine forest along the Cochituate Aqueduct and along the shore line at the town beach.

Town Forest Trails
