This Hopkinton Land Trust property offers a variety of trails. Starting from the parking area follow the white blazes on a trail that meanders through pines and boulders. At the end of the trail there is an old road. Turn left here, it will lead you to an open area known as Four Corners. There is a large tree and a cellar hole here. Turn right (to the north) and follow the Tomaquag Trail along a driftway. After passing the gate you will see a “Hopkinton Land Trust” sign facing the other direction of a tree. Look for the yellow blazed Beaver Flood Trail to the right. This trail will lead you through some low lying areas before climbing uphill and coming to the old road. Turn right and look for the white blazed trail now on the left. Turn here and retrace your steps back to the car.
