Throwback Adventure – Willard Brook State Park – Massachusetts

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

Willard Brook State Park is a publicly owned Park between the towns of Ashby and Townsend, Massachusetts.  It is 2,597 acres and includes a fast-running brook, and Trapp Falls.  It has a swimming pond, numerous trails, and opportunities for camping and picnicking.

Shadow, Buster and I had many, many Adventures to Willard Brook State Park, a lovely local State Park.  We have been in every season and with many others throughout the years.  I even visited as a kid, went on a date, and took our 2014 Christmas photographs at this fabulous location.  Willard Brook Park is a special place with lots of memories.  The Park has many trails, a fresh brook for dips and sips, sticks for lots of dog chewing, and many places to relax and play.  We have also enjoyed spending time near the tiny Trapp Falls, definitely a seasonal waterfall.  One of our preferred hikes has been the trail along the Brook as it is quite scenic and also has provided many opportunities to cool down.  The park has several simple, but scenic bridge which as you may guess I have enjoyed photographing.  I have put together too many photographs below from many different visits over the last eight years.  We will have to get there again as I do not believe Wilma has been there yet.  A beautiful local Park to explore!
