Dorothea Dix Park (Hampden)

It was a nice evening so my son and I took our dog for a walk at Dorothea Dix Park in Hampden.  I last visited the park in February when there was snow covering the ground, so it was nice to come back and see the trail system.  We did a short hike (0.8 miles round-trip) on the Locust Trail.

This was a nice short wooded walk.  There are options to extend the hike using different trails.  The park also has picnic tables, a small playground and portable toilets.

Here is a trail map.

The Locust Trail is wide and covered with wood chips.

Near the entrance there is a small playground and portable toilets.

There are also covered picnic tables and a grill.
