Quiet hike in a beautiful area with wildflowers and a brook. Perfect place to slow down and light up the senses. 

Park in the small parking area right before the trailhead. *Notice this parking area is small and only fits about 3-4 cars so prepare to find street parking on a busy day. You can punch in the coordinates to a GPS if you need help finding it: 42.4545482, -71.4358192. 

The loop is very diverse with numerous kinds of ferns and trees. there are also many side trails that can either shorten your walk or make it more interesting. This trail is dog-friendly and open from March-November.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Beautiful And Easy Hike

Pratt's Brook Conservation area was a quick and easy hike. My fiancé and I went in early September and trees covered the entire trail to make a shaded and beautiful walk. The brook was dried out unfortunately. I recommend the hike for a quick afternoon. There is also a cute farm nearby for locally grown produce.
