The Stonehurst Trails/Storer Conservation Land is the perfect place for beginner hikers and families with young children. On a secluded hilltop, Stonehurst is sclose to home yet feels tucked away from the city. Picnic on Glacier Rock and take in the beautiful, rolling acreas designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. You will find a well-groomed network of easy and moderate trails through open fields and mature forest. The trails intersect with each other often, so print out a map to take with you, or take a picture of the map on your smartphone at the trailhead.  One trail is ADA accessible. Dogs are welcome.

Stonehurst also offers self-guided tours for kids and adults.

Plan B:

If weather turns bad, take a tour of the historic Robert Treat Paine Estate. Visit for more information.

Where to Eat Nearby:

There are a variety of kid-friendly restaurants on Lexington Street and on Main Street and Moody Street in downtown Waltham.
