Breakheart Reservation Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"With hardwood forests, two lakes, seven rocky outcroppings, and a rambling section along the Saugus River, the 640-acre Breakheart Reservation is loved by many a dog from the Boston area.
The natural resources that are part of the reservation were once utilized by Native Americans to provide shelter, tools, and food. A miserable Civil War soldier stationed at this isolated location gave the park its current name. Today, an extensive trail system through the woodlands offers a variety of hiking opportunities, and an off-leash dog park named Bark Place provides an area for socializing with doggie friends."
