NOTE: I'm not very confident about the accuracy of this map. I haven't had a chance to test it out. If you get a chance to try it, please let me know how it works or even send me a KML track file. It should still be accurate enough to give you an idea of which trail you are on...and there is no way you can get lost in here....it isn't quite the deep forest of the Tongass National Forest here....   :)

 

 

Garden in the Woods, Framingham, MA 01701

The Garden in the Woods is the headquarters for the New England Wildflower Society. This 45 acre botanical garden in a hilly woodland setting is home to over 1000 species of native plants. Admission is charged to walk the trails and explore the manicured and landscaped gardens. The main path winds through many different landscape settings - meadows, rocky hillsides, marshland, and other typical New England features. Three loop trails offer visitors short diversions into the surrounding woodlands.
