Trails, Hiking Information & Maps

Trail Maps and Guides:

There are many walking trails located in and around the Barrett Park area. You can take these trails and end up near the water fall located on Recreation property or that will lead you to another trail. Trails have been cleared and are safe for walking/hiking.

We recommend you take a friend or group along while hiking in the woods for safety reasons. We hope you enjoy the trails that have been designed for beginner or intermediate hikers.

For more information contact the Recreation Department office or drop in with any questions. Maps are available in the office.

For additional hiking in the area, please visit the Mass DCR website.
