Bedford Trails Take-Your-Own Trail Walk to Fawn Lake

April 3, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - May 3, 2020 @ 5:00 pm


This is the second walk in our new Take-Your-Own Trail Walk series, based on Sarah Stanton’s, Bedford Town Manager, recommendation (during this age of social distancing) to exercise by walking our trails. As before, we’ll provide the description, map & directions, and you can take the trail walk at your convenience and your own pace.

Today’s walk is 90-100% on sidewalks and rail trails, depending on which option you choose (see map and full  descriptions at this link:!topic/bedfordma-trails/MeF73W7VXYY):

  • Park on the street between 54-60 Wildwood Drive
  • As shown in Step#1 on the map, you’ll need to decide whether or not to take the trail through York Conservation Area:
    • Walk Through York Conservation Area: Go East to the trailpost next to the driveway at 58 Wildwood Dr., to the beginning to the York Conservation Area, and continue on the trail until you reach the Narrow Gauge Rail Trail. The shorter, approximately 2-2.25 mile, 1 hour walk is over 90% on sidewalks, quiet streets and the Narrow Gauge Rail Trail. The York CA has woodlands of tall maple and oak trees, and rich shrubs including highbush blueberry, swamp winterberry, maple-leaved viburnum and swamp sweetbells
      Difficulty Level: Low-Moderate
      due to some small hills, bog bridges, tree roots, some uneven terrain, and could be wet or muddy-OR-
    • Walk Entirely on sidewalks, quiet streets and rail trail: Go West on Wildwood Dr. and take a left on Dana Rd. The approximately 2.8 mile, 1-1.5 hour walk is entirely on sidewalks and the Narrow Gauge Rail Trail, but you’ll miss the York Conservation Area
      Difficulty Level: Low

NOTE:            Please wear comfortable shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or muddy. Children and dogs on leash will enjoy the trail too!

Further, In light of the latest Coronavirus guidance (see:, please follow these precautions:

  • We ask that anyone with symptoms not participate.
  • Follow the 6-foot rule in walking and talking with family friends, and neighbors. Stay 6 feet away!
  • Use your judgement in interacting with people in business or in groups.
  • Going out in the air, exercising, doing normal activities is totally appropriate.
  • Exert caution, however, with any group activities.
