Carol J. Getchell Nature Trail

Download color copy of trail map.

Constructed by the Friends of Saxonville, this scenic walking trail was named in honor of the late Carol J. Getchell in 2001, one of the FOS founders and the original proponent for the trail's creation. The trail runs for one mile alongside the Sudbury River in Saxonville, beginning next to the Danforth Street Bridge and ending at Little Farms Road.

Paths from both Stapleton and Cameron Schools connect to the trail for easy nature study. The ample parking lot at the end of Little Farms Road also has an excellent canoe launch site that is managed by the State of Massachusetts Public Access Board.

Maintenance of the trail is on a volunteer basis through the FOS Adopt-The-Trail program.
