Sharon’s Hiking Trails

See the town map below for established hiking trails in Sharon. Click on colored areas for more information about an area. Click on trail labels to see some videos of hikes. Read about the progress that SFOC is making in mapping Sharon’s trails.

Now available: Detailed 11″ x 17″ color trail maps, with notes, photos and commentary for Sharon’s Massapoag, King Philip’s Rock, Beaver Brook and Horizons for Youth conservation areas. These maps are far more detailed than as shown on our website and are printed on a tough, completely waterproof paper. We are asking $4.00 each ($3.50 for members) for these maps which equals our printing and mailing costs. You may join SFOC for $25/year (includes family) and receive the member price at the same time.
