SVT and Longfellow's Wayside Inn have collaborated to create a 1.5-mile Innkeeper’s Loop, making it easy for guests to tour the grounds of this historic property. Paths at Wayside Inn lead to  the Martha Mary Chapel, the Cider House, and Carding Mill Pond, as well as other buildings and features. The trail map highlights this unique partnership and shows the Inn's property in the context of several other nearby SVT hiking opportunities, including: Memorial Forest, Nobscot Scout Reservation, Henry's Hill and Wayside Forest, Baiting Brook-Welch, and Baiting Brook Meadow Farm.

Longfellow’s Wayside Inn is a nonprofit corporation created in 1944 to own, operate, and maintain the Wayside Inn Historic Site. The site encompasses nine historic buildings and 100 acres of fields, forests, ponds, streams, and gardens. The centerpiece is the inn itself, which sits majestically along the historic Old Boston Post Road and continues an inn-keeping tradition dating back to 1716 of serving local communities as well as visitors from around the world.

The Wayside Inn provides a unique, tranquil, and historic setting rooted in colonial American traditions where family and friends can make lasting memories, and it is proud to offer a trail system for public enjoyment.

The trails at the Wayside Inn are open to the public for non-motorized use and during daylight hours only. The Inn reserves the right to impose rules and regulations regarding trail use, and the Inn may close public access to the trails at any time due to seasonal constraints or Inn events.
