Bay Circuit Trail

Medfield, MA 02052




A Massachusetts recreational trail which, forming an arc through the outlying suburbs of Boston from Plum Island in Newburyport to Kingston Bay in Duxbury, a distance of 200 miles.

The trail, first proposed in 1929 and imagined as an outlying version of Boston’s Emerald Necklace trail, spans fifty towns and cities and four counties.  The Bay Circuit forms a rough “C” shaped arc between 15 miles and 30 miles north, west, and south of Boston. The middle third of the Bay Circuit passes

through the towns of Walpole, Medfield, Sherborn, Ashland, Framingham, Southborough, Sudbury, Wayland, Lincoln, and Concord.

Features along this route in Medfield include the Noon Hill Reservation, Medfield Rhododendrons Reservation, the Charles River, Rocky Woods Reservation and  Fork Factory Brook. Smaller networks of interconnecting side trails run throughout.

What is permitted: hiking, horseback riding, cross country skiing, dog walking, bird watching, picnicking, mountain biking, snow shoeing and jogging.
