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.
