Northwest Framingham retains more than 1,100 acres of open space valuable for wildlife, farming, and quiet recreation. Sudbury Valley Trustees owns 12 parcels of land here, totaling more than 200 acres, and has participated in the protection of hundreds of additional acres now owned by Callahan State Park and the Town of Framingham or farmed under the state’s program of Agricultural Preservation restrictions.
Miles of bridle trails and foot paths, including the Bay Circuit Trail, traverse the lands shown on this map and continue beyond its bounds to the land on the east owned by the Sudbury Conservation Commission and the Knox Trail Council of the Boy Scouts of America. To the west, the Bay Circuit Trail continues across Department of Conservation and Recreation land to the shore of the Sudbury Reservoir. Depending on the season, bring a picnic, a camera, bird and flower guidebooks, or your cross-country skis, and enjoy rambling through this rural landscape.
