Fox Park is a small area along the Charles River in Waltham Massachusetts and hosts an easy 1 mile hike. The trail itself leads from the southern end of Fox Park, out to the Charles River, and ends in the north section of Fox Park - or vice versa. The trail itself is about 0.6 miles one-way, so plan for a 1 mile out-and-back trip.

Because of the lack of main entrances this park is not well-known except by people that live in the area and the students of Brandeis. 

This trail is recommended for a quiet stroll.

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!️
