The Route

Near where you parked, the Foxboro Wetlands Trail crosses in two places, at just a little over 100 feet apart. Both crossings are part of the loop, making it possible to begin riding or walking in either direction. For this description, begin on the north crosswalk heading east toward the mountains. Follow the trail as it heads in a northeast direction with homes to your left and the wetlands area to your right.

Keep walking to the next crosswalk on Fox Hollow Drive. Check for traffic and continue walking east. Fantastic views of the Wasatch Mountains in the distance give a nice backdrop to the serene wetlands. As you walk, watch for birds and other wildlife that call the wetlands home.

Soon the trail intersects with a sidewalk on Cutler Drive. Turn right and follow the sidewalk 100 yards south to the junction with the south side of the loop. Turn right and continue heading west as the trail winds through tall grasses and lush wetland foliage.

Check for traffic and keep going as the trail crosses Fox Hollow Drive and Foxboro Drive once again, before continuing on to the west end of the loop. Follow the trail as it turns north and passes by the junction for the Legacy Parkway Trail before turning east again and returning to your starting point. Take another lap, or for a longer walk or ride, try out the Legacy Parkway Trail.
