Carol Getchell Trail

Welcome to Carol Getchell Trail

This trail was conceived in the mid-90s and was dedicated in 2001 in memory of Carol J. Getchell, the principal of the Stapleton School and an early proponent of the trail.

Running along the west side of the Sudbury River from the Old Danforth Street Bridge to Little Farms Road, the trail features:

  • Boardwalk over wetlands
  • Benches
  • Wonderful views of the river


Paths from both Stapleton and Cameron Schools connect to the trail for easy nature study. The ample parking lot at the end of Little Farms Road also has an excellent canoe launch site that is managed by the Public Access Board.
