DescriptionGreat trail that runs through Wellesley's beautiful woods, parks, and town centers. Superb for walking and running. There are about 6 trails that make up the Wellesley Trail system including a Charles River trail. (See maps). A great way to spend your day! The trail is well marked with arrows, so if you are following trail through one of the town areas, just follow the signs that are posted on the lamp posts. It's great!

The trail runs through the Wellesley High high school athletic fields (Senior High/Hunnewell Field) which has a fantastic all-weather track. A great place for a track workout (great trails for warm-ups and warm-downs), or a an awesome place to incorporate some fast turn over drills during your run. This is along the Crosstown Trail/ Brook Path section.

Also, if you want to grab a sports drink, shot blocks, or even a new pair of shoes during your run, stop at Marathon Sports Wellesley location http://www.marathonsports.com/pages/wellesley). Great store! You go right by it if you are following the Crosstown Trail. :) They'd love to meet you! This is where I buy all my shoes. :)

Whole Foods is also right near the Crosstown Trail and Senior High/Hunnewell Field (442 Washington St.). Great place to get some awesome food after a good workout! YUM!
