Wompatuck State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Located just 35 minutes from downtown Boston, Wompatuck State Park has a long and rich history. Originally home to Chief Josiah Wompatuck and his people, the land was deeded by the chief to English settlers in 1665.
During World War II and the Korean War, the land was used as an ammunitions depot for the United States military. Today, the 3526-acre park provides opportunities for hiking, camping, biking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. Unlike many other state parks, “Wompy” allows well-behaved dogs to explore the trails leash free. The mostly flat land divided by a number of abandoned paved roads and hiking trails offers a plethora of places to explore with your dog."
