where wonder happens
Eastover: Hales Brook and Sippican River
south-of-boston Marion, MA

From a new trailhead on County Road, you can now explore even more of the scenic East Over landscape.

Located on two tracts owned by the Town of Marion and managed by The Trustees, these 2.5 miles of forest trail traverse pine and oak uplands and unique wetland habitats. On the trail you’ll pass a dramatic rock outcropping emerging from the forest floor and walk along an extensive elevated boardwalk that gives up-close views of an ecologically sensitive area. On the northern trail loop, a stone slab bridge crosses over a small stream.
 
A recent easement granted by the neighboring cranberry bog owner, whose active bogs you can see from the trail, will connect the Town of Marion’s East Over Reservation to Hathaway Pond and the Town of Rochester, adding about a mile of walking trails to the existing system. Work is also underway on another trail addition, just north of the rock outcropping; it’s scheduled to be completed in 2014.
