This small section of the Bay Circuit Trail is a 4.3 mile out-and-back trail that goes along the Sudbury Reservoir in Southborough, MA. The hike is mostly flat, with some uphill sections closer to the northern terminus. In autumn, this is one of the best hikes in eastern Massachusetts to see foliage along the water and in a fairly secluded area. This trail gets traffic, mostly in the early mornings and evenings, but is not a very popular spot.

The trail is mostly flat until you reach the northern section near Parmenter Road where the trail shoots uphill before becoming flat again.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
