Trails at Hinkley park can be combined to provide a number of loop and short hike options around a set of ponds fed by Kimball Brook. Trails loop along the shoreline, through wooded stretches, and along fields. Several bridges and benches provide scenic overlooks of the ponds and brooks, and at the outlet of each pond there are mini falls.
The terrain varies from uneven, climbing paths to flat, gentle walks with elevation at its lowest near the main parking area and trailhead off Highland Avenue and increasing towards Stillman Street. Following the outermost trails around the park creates an approximately three quarter mile loop with several side trails connect to nearby neighborhoods.
Hinckley Park is a favored destination for dog walkers. Please remember to obey leash laws where applicable and clean up after your pet.
