Manchester Reservoir – Attleboro

  • Manchester Reservoir
  • Beagle Club Road, Attleboro, MA
  • Trailhead: 41°56’23.48″N, 71°19’25.82″W
  • Last Time Hiked: June 21, 2014

I met someone this morning for today’s hike. Manchester Reservoir is an area that she is quite familiar with as she often walks her dog here. As a matter of fact, her dog did most of the navigating.  We started from the cul-de-sac at the end of Beagle Club Road and followed the paved trail up to the dam. From here the trail turns into a dirt footpath that follows the edge of the reservoir. We stopped briefly a few times to take a few photos of the reservoir. The trail then splits. We went left away from the reservoir and slightly uphill. From this point forward we meandered through the woods occasionally seeing some boulders. I really am not sure of the exact paths that we took as I was enthralled in conversation. We essentially made a large loop through the woods which concluded by following a trail that lead back to the cul-de-sac.


I did not find a trail map on-line.

    Thank you for posting these. I love walking with my dog. And I’m always looking for new places to take him. But, I have a question. Could you possibly put some sort of icon, or something, to indicate if the trails can accommodate a person using a walker? You mentioned paving on a couple of reviews, which was terrific for me. Unfortunately, if I can’t use my rollator/Walker, I can’t go. And, sorry to be a pest, do you know of places to walk at night that are lighted? Thank you!

    • I will look into some sort of classification and label the appropriate walks. When I do that I will send you the link. I do not know off hand of places that are lighted at night. Any night walking I do is at Blackstone Boulevard in Providence. If you are on Facebook follow Trails and Walks there. I will ask that question to folks that follow the page.
