Field with crabapple trees, wildflowers, and mowed path paralleling the Charles River. The pathway leaves Conservation Commission land and continues on a conservation restriction path alongside condos.


The pathway ends at an old railroad embankment. At the top of the embankment is the Upper Falls Greenway, a walking and biking trail that extends a mile towards Newton Highlands.

The pathway may someday become part of the Blue Heron Trail

Adjacent to the conservation area is the Saco Lowell Shops Housing Historic District.
