F. Gilbert Hills State Forest

45 Mill St
Foxboro, MA 02035


Covering 1,027 acres in Foxboro and Wrentham, F. Gilbert Hills State Forest is a passive use pine and oak forest.  There are approximately 23 miles of trails for various uses throughout the property.  One of these is the Warner Trail, a long-distance hiking trail that travels through Norfolk County on its way to Rhode Island.  Mountain biking is a widely popular activity on the property, and there are also designated trails for horseback riding and off-highway motorcycles.

The forest is named for a dedicated State Forester and park employee.  In the 1930’s this forester produced a series of outstanding illustrative maps of many of the Department’s properties in existence at the time.  The headquarters area is the site of a former CCC camp, and evidence of their work can be seen throughout the property.
