The Main Trail is well marked by a single blue blaze. A small parking lot is available at the head of the trail. There is a small interactive music station along the trail, and an interesting tree is located in the center of the area, slightly off the trail. You can use the Connector Trail
for a shorter loop or add on the Yellow Trail
for a longer run.
The Dorothy and Charles Leggett Memorial Woodlands were a generous gift of the late Dorothy Leggett. Charlie Leggett, her late husband, was the developer of a new variety of squash, later named the Waltham Butternut Squash, in a field across Gleasondale Road from the Leggett Woodlands. Dorothy Sonnichsen facilitated Dorothy Leggett’s 2004 gift of 23 acres between Gleasondale Road and Whitman Street.
