The Bay Colony Rail Trail will one day interval 7 miles linking the Boston suburbs of Newton, Needham, Dover, and Medfield along paths once employed by the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority. In May 2016, 1.7 kilometers of this pathway opened between High Rock Street at Needham Junction along with the Charles River on the Needham/Dover border. On the way, the wooded trail passes the Needham Town Forest and crosses the beautiful Charles River Peninsula, where footpaths and a boat launch are available.

Parking and Route Access Parking is available in Red Wing Bay on the south side of Fisher Street.
