      Fun challenging trails. Not a lot of miles but the trails do a good job of making the most of the limited space. Also known as High Rock Forest.

      Some of the forest's trails are marked with tiny birdhouses the roofs of which are colored green, red, yellow, blue or white to indicate which trail you're on. There are also colored blazes on many trees that supplement the birdhouses. A map of the forest is located on the signboard at the parking area and copies are available at the Needham Town Hall.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
