This is not a complex or challenging hike, but for its proximity to Boston, it offers amazing views and a unique up-close tour of a salt marsh and the North River. The loop winds through wooded marshes in the North River watershed. The reservation encompasses 117 acres of wooded upland and salt marsh in the watershed bracketed by Second Herring Brook and the North River. The landscape reveals its recent history, as Eleanor’s Trail is named for Eleanor Norris, who donated her family’s farmland to form the original 101-acre grant.
