Description

There are multiple ways to access the trail, but the easiest may be from either Cat Rock parking lot or Cucchiara Learning Center parking lot, which is the technical beginning and end of the trail.

The trail covers mostly smooth trail, with rocks and roots dotting the trail. Runners will pass along the banks of Storrow Pond and Noanet Pond, giving you a chance to stop and enjoy a peaceful view. The trail is blazed in blue, but blazing is not consistent (a common problem in Hale Reservation).

While there are many intersecting trails, it is easy to stay on course with one exception. At roughly the 1.4-mile mark, runners exit the woods at the power lines (the second time crossing the power lines if going counterclockwise), and this crossing is notable by the dumpsters present. At this point the blue blazes are hard to find. Head down the fire road arriving at the Noanet Pond levee. Run across the levee, and you'll see blue blazes again at the far end; you'll be making a left here.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: There are wildflowers throughout the trails, including a variety of orchid.
