County Road Walk – Leyden, Mass.

Located in Leyden, Massachusetts, the County Road Walk is a two-mile roundtrip walk surrounded by beautiful country farm landscapes. The walk is on a quiet, dirt road with minimal traffic moving through. Walkers will enjoy viewing sprawling farmland and cows grazing in the field as they pass beautiful homes and wildflowers along the way. The walk itself is relatively flat and is accessible for the novice walker looking to take a shorter walk in a new setting.
