Ascend a small hill to where a massive granite monolith juts into the sky, then pass a swamp where another huge boulder has sat as silent witness for millennia.

Very short hike to two large erratics

Worth the little time it takes to visit one or both of the large boulders. Only a mile to do the full loop. Very buggy in July!

Beautiful easy hike for those who are ready to get out of their car or away from being a tourist in Boston. Interesting sign post at entrance to path. We just happened upon this and enjoyed the walk.

Nice trail through a marsh, not much to see doesn't make it a must stop. But great for your everyday nature lover.

Agassiz Rock(s) are rocks left in the woods after the last glacier melted. The walk was quite nice and peaceful, despite being close to the highway. Walking up the trail, you will pass several vernal ponds that were quite beautiful. There were various animals around the pools as well. The loop section of the trail takes you to Big Agassiz...

Agassazi Rock is yet another excellent Trustees property. The entire walk over easy to not quite moderate terrain is scenic and we were the only ones on the trail for nearly 2 hours.
