Beaver Brook is the largest protected land in Waltham.

Located between Trapelo Road in Waltham and Concord Avenue in Lexington and Belmont, Beaver Brook North Reservation covers 254 acres and crosses the borders of Waltham, Lexington and Belmont.

The reservation features a variety of habitats, including meadows, forests, ponds, and swamps. From the top of Mackerel Hill, views of Boston and the Blue Hills can be seen.

The Reservation’s numerous carriage roads and by-paths are conducive to passive recreation activities, such as hiking, bird-watching, and cross-country skiing. Follow the green trail blazes for the Western Greenway Trail, a 17+ mile trail that connects the major parks in Waltham.

Plan B:

In case of bad weather, visit the National Archives, just down the road on Trapelo Road. Visit for hours and more information.
