Rules and Regulations

Covid-19 Temporary Rules

During the Massachusetts Covid-19 Stay At Home Advisory, please adhere to these modifications to the normal rules and regulations on conservation land and trails:

  • Maintain the advised physical distance from other trail users (6 feet at time of writing).
  • Please park in designated parking areas. If a parking area is overflowing, it will be harder to maintain safe distance from other users. Try a trail you haven’t tried before or wait for another time.
  • Please do not use the map boxes at our kiosks. Download or print a map from home to avoid having to touch the map boxes. You can find maps in the online trail guide.
  • Please follow all state and federal orders regarding public activities.

And a reminder that dogs must be leashed on our trails. This is even more important in these times as friendly dogs can cause social distance to collapse and may be able to transfer virus from one walker to another.
