Like everybody else these days, I am 100% devoted to my daily walks. Since some of my go-to spots have been placed off limits due to coronavirus concerns, such as Audubon’s Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary in South Natick and the path around Wellesley College’s Lake Waban, I’ve taken the opportunity to get out of my trails rut and find new (to me) spots.
Coolidge Woods, with its Eisenmenger trail and many criss-crossing paths was a wonderful spot to hike. I accessed the area at Coolidge Field, near Natick Center. There is parking on Chester St. and Sheridan St. You can’t miss the entrance to Coolidge Woods.
There are many, many ways to hike that area. I opted for an out and back route that took me from Coolidge Field, along the pasture bordering the former Winona Farm in South Natick, to Nokamis Way, and back, a two-mile round trip route. Come along with me for a nice and easy hike.
