Wrentham Trails

Friday, August 05, 2016

Alt Names

Wrentham State Forest, Wampum Rock, Rabbit Hill Pond, Pinnacle Hill, Bear Swamp Trail, Hollow Rock Trail

Last Known StatusOpen

This deep forest has about 8 miles of rocky single track trails and while there is nothing too challenging, these trails will keep you mostly in first or second gear. The staging area has direct trail access to the western section but you will need to cross the pavement (Taunton Street) to access the eastern side.

Old stone walls can be found on the eastern side, a reminder of the areas farming history. This area is patrolled heavily by both local police and state forest rangers, so current registration is a must.

There is a lot of single track here, much more than you would expect, and it is easy to get disoriented. One trick is to remember that Route 495 (East/West) and Taunton Street (North/South) make a cross right through the center of the area so you should at least be able to tell what quadrant you are in. Treat any other paved roads that you come across as boundaries and you'll be in good shape. Beware of hunters during hunting season (no hunting on Sundays).
