Follow meandering trails through a forest of pine, beech, and hemlock and enjoy what was once a family’s cherished preserve.
What makes Chase Woodlands a special place?
The reservation’s network of gently sloping paths winds for more than two miles through groves of white pine, beech, hemlock, and yellow birch. As in most of Massachusetts, this woodland consists of second- and third-growth trees, the original virgin forests having been felled to clear land for agriculture in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Stone walls traverse the woods, and an open understory makes exploring easy for kids.
2.5 miles of trails, including a trail extension that links Chase Woodlands to Peters Reservation via a road crossing on Farm Street. The regional Charles River Link Trail passes through this reservation. Easy walking.
When to Visit
Year-round, daily, sunrise to sunset. Allow a minimum of 1 hour, 2 hours if also visiting Peters Reservation.
