This Trustees of Reservations property, which connects up with other Trustees properties and is also a link in the Bay Circuit Trail, offers several trails.

This Trustees of Reservations property, which connects up with other Trustees properties and is also a link in the Bay Circuit Trail, offers several trails of varying lengths (from .5 miles to 2.5 miles) to explore, each with something different to see and offering varying degrees of difficulty.

Take the half-mile Orange Loop around Holt’s Pond for a quick hike, perfect for little legs or those without a lot of time. For a longer hike, take the 1.3-mile Noon Hill Red Loop trail, which leads to the 370-foot peak and offers beautiful views of the area.

In every season, there is plenty to see and do at Noon HIll, from hiking to mountain biking to cross-country skiing. In spring, migratory songbirds and wildflowers are the big draw, while in the fall, birdwatchers like to visit to catch a glimpse of the annual hawk migration when the raptors make their way south for the winter. If you time your visit properly, you can witness firsthand how the property got its name: the midday sun passes right over the ridge of Noon Hill.

There is also a short trail across Causeway Street which connects Noon Hill to the Shattuck Reservation and leads to a lookout point at the Charles River.

Plan B:

The Mass Audubon Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary is nearby and offers exhibits and activities.

Where to Eat Nearby:

The Noon Hill Grill in Medfield is family-friendly and there are other cafes as well, all within a 15-minute drive.
