Middlesex Fells Reservation Dog Hike

Let’s get into nature and enjoy the cool and colorful fall season in New England!  An easy hike around the large Middlesex Fells reservoir on wide, well-manicured, rolling, soft pine-covered trails.  Dogs optional, on-leash dogs welcome!


  • When:  Sunday, 1 October @ 10.00 am.  Approx 2 hr hike, including stops to the enjoy vista views.
  • Where:  Middlesex Fells Reservation State Park, @ Sheepfold Dog Park.  Address:  Fells Path, Stoneham, MA 02180
  • Meeting location:  Sheepfold Dog Park at the top parking lot, just before entering the meadow.  Look for Heather with a black 60lb puppy and a blue Columbia T-Shirt and hat.
  • Parking:  Plenty of free parking in lots at the park.  Suggest arriving by 9.30 am, just in case there is a line for parking.
  • Bring:  Water for you, and lots of water and clean up bags for your dog.


  • Hike Distance:  Approx 3 miles. 


  • Dog info:  On-leash hiking on trails.  As a plus, dogs can play off-leash in the meadow if they would like a longer run after the hike.
  • Weather rain check:  Check Columbia’s Boston Alumni Facebook group the morning of 1 Oct if there is inclement weather, in case we need a weather rain check for a future weekend.  Unless there is a major storm, we will be out hiking and having fun!
