The Bay Colony Rail Trail will one day span 7 miles connecting the Boston suburbs of Newton, Needham, Dover, and Medfield along tracks once used by the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority.
In May 2016, 1.7 miles of the pathway opened between High Rock Street in Needham Junction and the Charles River on the Needham/Dover border. Along the way, the wooded trail passes the Needham Town Forest and crosses the beautiful Charles River Peninsula, where footpaths and a boat launch are available.
Parking is available at Red Wing Bay on the south side of Fisher Street.
