The Wapack Trail

The Wapack Trail is a 21-mile skyline footpath from Mt. Watatic in Ashburnham, Massachusetts to North Pack Monadnock in Greenfield, New Hampshire. Completed in 1923, it is the oldest interstate hiking trail in the Northeast.

The trail is well-marked and has three points of entry in Sharon: on Nashua Road (at the Temple line), on Temple Road (near the intersection of Greenleaf), and on Mountain Road (for the Berry Pasture Trail). A Wapack Trail Guide is available via the Friends of the Wapack and can also be purchased at Eastern Mountain Sports in Peterborough.

The Wales Preserve

The 48 acre Wales Preserve is the result of two gifts to The Nature Conservancy by Ralph and Betty Wales. It is open for passive recreational, educational and scientific uses and is located on Spring Hill Road.
