Hale Reservation and The Trustees are teaming up to host a day of trail discovery. Hike the entire 13 miles from Westwood, through Dover and Medfield on the Tri-Town Trail - or tackle one of the shorter sections.

On this day, we will be providing a delivery service should any hikers wish to purchase anything but doesn’t want to lug it while they continue on their hike.
