A popular hiking trail for families so be sure to keep an eye out when bombing through corners. This trail is one of the most unique trails I've biked. Towards the beginning (green dot on trail forks) there is a "fairy garden" neighborhood with various plots setup with kids toys and other miniatures. Halfway through you will happen upon a fully built train model with a really cool looking bridge (all hand built). This oddity has been featured in listicles and is a truly unique feature one would find in the middle of the woods.

Towards the end (red dot on trailforks) the rock and root features are typical to what you find everywhere else in Needham Town Forest. Have fun
