Hike the Weir Hill Reservation Trail

Legion Beach Parking Lot

Trek through the woods in boots or snowshoes and take in the sights at Lake Cochichewick. 

Park at the American Legion Beach parking area. You will then cross the eastern corner of Stevens Pond to get to the trail. Either turn right on Alewife trail and keep right, or turn left on Stevens trail. These merge into Cochichewick trail--this is the section of the loop that passes by Cochichewick lake. Take your time here and enjoy the scenery! Complete the loop and retrace your steps over the pond to return to the parking area. 

Dogs are allowed on this trail, which is accessible from December-February. You may want to bring snowshoes.

Home Trail

This is my go to running trail. A dog lover's heaven, Weir hill and Osgood hill are full of well used and well cared for trails that are beautiful in every season. Wide, well shaded paths are perfect for running, they are continuously maintained and the reservation is just small enough that it's nearly impossible to get lost even if you aren't familiar with the area.

Great Place To Walk

A great place to get some exercise with your dog. The trail is kept pretty pristine and it's not super crowded. They have a couple of rules to follow, such as not to enter or let your pet in the lake, but beyond that it makes for a great hike with your dog.
