These woods are the perfect place for a easy walk in the wood. The main trails are roads from past centuries, the geological formations that adorn their side are leftovers from the glaciers that preceded our history. It’s an easy walk but can get muddy...More

Add this one on when visiting Weir River Farm for 10 more miles of trails. I enjoyed a nice relaxing run this time but have also brought my mountain bike for a ride, great mix of hilly terrain and flat bike path (unpaved).

Trails for bikes, trails for walkers, runners, dogs to meet...many entrances and easily accessible. Fingers crossed dogs will still be allowed off their leash going forward as this is a paradise for families with pets...everyone gets to run free and meet new friends!

I frequently pass through these woods as part of a connected set of biking trails adjacent to Wompatuck. The Thayer woods trails are wider and better groomed so they are far more accessible than some of the Wompatuck single track.
