Moraine Trail (Central Section) – Kettle Holes

Rugged moraine and glacial kettle holes are the hallmarks of this section of the Northern Moraine Trail that lies between Thomas B. Landers and Blacksmith Shop Roads.

The primary (blazed) trail is routed to the south and east of the town wastewater management facility, however numerous side trails have been created and are used by hikers and mountain bikers. Follow the white blazes to stay on the Moraine Trail!

Parking for northbound hikers is available on the grassy road edges just north of where the Service Road intersects with Blacksmith Shop Road. The trailhead is just east along Blacksmith Shop Road; look for a boulder with a white blaze on your left, where the trail enters the woods. For southbound hiking, park at the Falmouth Ice Rink just off Thomas B. Landers Road and Technology Park Drive. To find the trail, follow Tech Park Drive south and turn right onto Research Road. In about 500 feet, you should see white blazes on the sidewalk and the trail on your left.

Maps of the entire Moraine Trail are available at The 300 Committee office.
