About the Trail

The Waverley Trail runs about three-quarters of a mile, principally
along Trapelo Road, from the recently renovated Waverley
Village School (now the Engine 1 condominiums) in Belmont to the
Beaver Brook Reservation that straddles the town line between
Belmont and Waltham.

The project is the result of the initiative
and generosity of private
citizens and local business and non-profit sponsors, working in
conjunction with the Belmont Land Trust, the Waltham Land Trust,
local governments and the Massachusetts Department of
Conservation and Recreation, to realize their vision for the trail.

Complete with
interpretive kiosks, wall plaques, signposts
and banners
, the trail highlights the Waverley neighborhood’s
cultural, commercial, transportation and natural history. Perhaps
most importantly, the Trail reminds the children of Waverley that
they live in a place of remarkable cultural and natural interest,
which they can help to care for over many decades to come.
