The South Street Trail is on town-owned property, as are most trails in town. The area is mostly pine forest and offers views of the Neponset River. The unique feature of the trail is its close proximity to the Neponset. Shertick Point is a lovely spot on the riverbank. From there, you can look north across the river and see Duffy Point in the Town Forest. The south section of trail follows an old fire road which makes it hard to get lost. The north section splits, but both paths reconnect under the power lines. Trail markers are YELLOW.
This trail is mostly flat.
Southern loop is about ¾ mile. South St-Shertick Point is about 3/8mi. Shertick Point-Water Dept is about 3/8 mi.
South End – The Trailhead shown in the photo is about 50 yards south of the sign for the Neponset River where the river crosses South St. Park on either side of South St near the trailhead. Be sure to pull your car well off the road.
North End – Park at the Water Department, 1303 Washington St.
