The Endean Trail was initially established many years ago, and then fell into disrepair. In 2007 an Eagle Scout re-established the trail and put up trail markers. The trail offers beautiful views of Plimpton Pond, the Neponset River and Bird Pond. The trail has been the site of 3 other sets of improvements by other Eagle Scouts since it was reestablished. Trail markers are orange.
The section of trail at the north edge of Plimpton Pond is challenging. The trail traverses a steep slope. The balance of the trail is flat.
The Endean Trail is approximately one mile long.
