Overview

From the main Carby Street parking area, this loop heads counter-clockwise primarily on the red, Page & Sadie Trail around Noanet Pond. Just off Rte 95/128 at High Street, this area makes for an easily-accessible after-work option or a weekend adventure.

This loop can be traveled in either direction and accessed year-round, though conditions and visitation can vary a lot.

Need to Know

Hale is a private nonprofit primarily used for education and recreation. Open daily from 7:30 am until 4 pm in winter, 8 pm in summer, and 6 pm in spring/fall. Expect lots of families and children in the summer months.

Description

From High Street, the main entrance and offices for Hale Reservation can be found off Dover Road on Carby Street to the northwest of Westwood. Follow the road toward North Beach and Cat Rock Field, where parking and restrooms are available.

For this run, accessing the main Page & Sadie Trail loop is the goal. This track starts on the blue, Storrow Pond Trail with a return on the orange, Split Rock Trail to avoid having to repeat any section of trail. With only a couple hundred yards from the main parking area, visitors can choose which trail they take toward the lake.

At the lake, follow the red, Page & Sadie Trail as it gently rises and falls along the contours of the shoreline. The Hale Summer Club uses the beach on the south side of the lake where you may find a restroom and additional parking off Brune Way depending on the time of year.

You may cross several trails or roads along the loop, but staying near the lake will keep you on the right track. Visitors will pass an electrical line corridor on the west side of the lake.

History & Background

The land was owned by Robert Sever Hale and provided for scouts from Boston in 1918.
