The Red Blazed Trail and Yellow Dot Ridge Trail loop hike at the Rocky Woods Reservation in Medfield, Massachusetts is an easy 1.9 mile hike that encompasses half of the Red Blaze Trail and the outer portion of the Yellow Dot Ridge Trail.

Starting at the parking lot, and take the Red Blazed Trail Chickering Lake - keep right at the fork and continue on until you see the Yellow Dot Ridge Trail. Follow the Yellow Dot Ridge Trail all the way to Echo Pond and then back to parking.

This is a fairly easy hike up along the Yellow Dot Ridge Trail and it's easy coming down the hill to Echo Pond before heading back towards parking. This trail is also lightly trafficked, so it's a great secluded area to escape Boston for a day hike.

While in the area, be sure to check out the Fork Factory Brook Reservation, directly across the street from parking. The Orange Loop Trail at Fork Factory is quite interesting for a quick stop.

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!️
