We had a great time hiking with the girls and they loved climbing around on all the rocks, even Mr. big kid at heart, (who was in his element here with all the rock climbing) was having such a blast and was more excited than the kids! Lol - we will be enjoying this place a lot now that we found it so close to home.

Needham Town Forest is a small gem, hemmed in my suburban Needham. At 200 acres, this is not a huge place. However, there are many bike trails that were added by NEMBA. High Rock is very fun to climb. It is not huge, but it is easy to climb without a top rope or any other gear. The park has somewhat of a caretaker, a retired design engineer from Boston who has placed tiny birdhouses on trees with color coded roofs to denote the trail. He has also created "Martini Junction" which is a beautiful area with a bench, bird feeders, and a complete train set. Out in the middle of the woods! The attention to detail is phenominal.

Nothing terribly difficult from a terrain perspective but lots of rock faces to climb on. If you are looking for a new place to hike, this is a great one.
