An excellent and varied trail that makes for a great run.

Runner Notes

There are a few downed trees here and there, and during bigger storms, bigger branches may fall down so be careful.

Description

This is an excellent short path that should eventually be connected to surrounding trails for greater endurance building. To start, there is a parking lot at the main entrance to the southeast, but can also access the trail from the north at the split of Clovelly and Suffolk Rd where the train tracks are. Pick your path and follow it; it's hard to get truly lost, but the trail does feel really woodsy at times. This track provides a steep up with unusual small boulder placements along the path with a very steep (for Boston) descent back to the start. You can also mix up the loop to achieve greater variance for building skills and endurance.
