A friend discovered a walk in Topsfield, MA that sounded like a "must do" to me. We walked it together earlier in the week and I returned today with my camera.
It's about 11 miles from home, and the walk is a loop that is just over 3 miles. Interstate 95 and very busy Route 1 are not too far away but the roads of the loop are 2-lane and quiet.
For anyone who is in eastern Massachusetts and is interested in walking this loop:
You go to a church in Topsfield (put in 124 River Road) and park in the parking lot. Then walk out of the parking lot, take a left and then another left to Rowley Bridge Road and then continue to Cross St. (Another left) and go to the end of Cross St. And take another left to River Rd. You simply continue with lefts the whole way. It is a big circle that is just over 3 miles and you go by the Ipswich River, beautiful farms with sheep and cows, lovely scenery and beautiful homes.
It was a blue sky day.
I suspect I will be walking this loop at different times of the year; I look forward to seeing the landscape in different conditions.
