Course Description
The Western Greenway 5K is trail route starting and finishing at Elsie Turner Field on Trapelo Road in Waltham. The Western Greenway features miles of trails and old carriage roads which loop through a variety of habitats: including cattail marshes, red maple swamps, mature oak-hickory forests, vernal pools, new forests, and open meadows. The course is rocky and unpaved, therefore strollers or baby joggers are not allowed on the course.

Parking - Very Important
Parking Area One is at the National Archives Center on Trapelo Road and along the access road. A Waltham Police Officer will be available for participants to cross Trapelo Road at a designated point.

Parking Area Two is at the Fernald School near the Shriver Medical Building about 1/2 Mile from the start. This will be a good warmup.

Notice: Parking will not be allowed in the neighborhood area and if vehicles are blocking access for emergency vehicles they will be towed at the owners expense.
