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.
