Run the Jamaica Pond and Victorian Jamaica Plain Loop

Rate this Adventure Massachusetts Jamaica Pond

Added by The Outbound Collective

The serenity of the pond is balanced by the lively wildlife that make this trail such a pleasure. You will be so caught up in the natural beauty of this place that your run will be over before you know it!

Park in the Jamaica Pond parking area. You can go either direction on this loop trail, which is highly trafficked and dog-friendly. Keep a lookout for (and a respectful distance from) the wildlife that live here.
