The Orange Loop Trail at the Fork Factory Brook Reservation in Medfield, Massachusetts is an easy, low-trafficked, 1.5 mile hike down to an old mill site and through deciduous and coniferous forests outside of Boston. The old mill site is located behind the pond, which is located at the southern portion of this trail's GPS data along Mill Brook. At the back of the pond there's an old stone dam, but there's not much to see now other than a small dam with a drainage runoff which feeds Mill Brook south of this area.

Beware that flooding from recent rainfall may cause the trail to be cut off in certain places.

For an additional interesting hike in the area, be sure to check out the trails at the Rocky Woods Reservation across the street.

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!️
