Take a Hike
SVT's Whitehall Woods is situated between Upton State Forest and Whitehall State Park on Pond Street in Hopkinton. The wooded property is home to a trail that can be used to access the adjacent Upton State Forest. The property consists of varied terrain and habitat type including white pine-red oak forest with scattered pockets of red maple in lowland areas. A large vernal pool is located near the trail head. The land was protected in October 2016 in partnership with Hopkinton Area Land Trust, who owns a conservation restriction on the property. The trail was opened to the public in June, 2017.
