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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
