This loop trail at the Weston Conservation Land in Weston, Massachusetts is a moderate 3.4-mile trail that ends at the Ruth B Dickinson Memorial Ring. This trail does not have a formal name, hence the reference to the horse ring where parking is located.

The trailhead can be found at the parking area; however, this recording begins east of the parking lot and heads south, passing through a couple of loops, and eventually connects to the Mass Central Rail Trail at each of the southern spurs. The main trails are old fire roads so they are fairly wide and easily passable. The smaller loops are made up of shorter trails. Overall this is a very nice area, but a tracking device is recommended if you're not familiar with these woods since there are multiple turns throughout the trek.

After exploring the spur trails that connect to the Mass Central Rail Trail, this recording heads back north to loop around shorter trails then heads northwest towards the parking lot at the Ruth B Dickinson Memorial Ring.

Parking: Ruth B Dickinson Memorial Ring appears on Google Maps as Weston Wayland Open Spring Horse Show, where you can find parking. You can also park across the street at Burchard Field at the Weston College Land.

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!️
