Description

Farandnear is filled with easy, quick trails. The Yellow Trail is wide enough to hike alongside someone, and is a great place to visit to watch or listen to the birds, admire the trees, or if you just need to escape civilization for a quick jaunt. There are no major elevation changes or technical areas along this loop except for the closed Arbutus Path, which has been rendered wetlands by the beavers. There are many different environments here including the arboretum, an old cranberry bog, and open-landscaped areas. You can also take the West Reservoir Trail or East Reservoir Road to shorten the loop if you so desire. This trail is well worth a visit, and it may become a regular stop.

This is one of The Trustees of Reservations properties, so you know it is always well cared for. Visit the park's website for more information.
