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. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
