|NOANET WOODLANDS WALK - Dover, MA - 1/11/15, 10am|
Walk in Noanet Woodlands and Hale Reservation.
Michael writes: I'd like to spend several hours in the woods and on these trails located in the towns of Dover and Westwood southwest of Boston. Hale Res. and Noannet Woodlands are adjoining reservations managed by separate agencies, but both offer nice trails with some high points with quite nice views, as well as several ponds, brooks, and a historic mill site. Hike will probably be at least five miles, lasting three hours or so. Trails should be dry and are not steep or difficult but bring along whatever tools you think you might use that day---ice creepers/crampons if you have them might be good idea, but probably not essential here---and I'm also not expecting to have to get off the trails for any fox hunt going on: several years ago, a few dozen charging steeds with riders in their Pinques created quite an impressive and memorable event as they thundered by us.
Meet: 10am, Caryl Park Lot, Dover, MA. Caryl Park is about 0.5 mile northeast of the center of Dover on Dedham St. From Rt. 128/95, Exit #17 Rt. 135W (heading towards Needham). Needham Avenue (Rt. 135) becomes Dedham Avenue in Needham. At the first light, take a left on South St. After 0.6 mile, bear left to stay on South St. Do not go straight on to High Rock Road. Take a left on Chestnut St. at the blinking red light. Go 0.3 mile and bear right as Chestnut becomes Dedham Street when you cross town line into Dover. Caryl Park is 2 miles from this point. You will see Mill Farm (White Barn) on the left side of the road. Right after the barn is Caryl Park/Noanet Woodlands Reservation on the left. NOTE: There is another parking lot also named Caryl Park, closer to Dover center at the soccer fields. Do NOT park there, unless you want to walk up to the other lot to meet us.
