About Kimball Lake
Kimball Lake, approximately 28 acres in size, has adjoining cabins and hiking trails and is located at 185 Main Street in Hopkinton. Residents are encouraged to use this area for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and canoeing/kayaking.

A nature walk is also available. The trail begins at the end of the gravel road, which is adjacent to the main cabin. This woodland trail follows the shore of Kimball Lake and offers two options for walkers. The shorter route loops back to the lake while the longer route connects to South Road via New Road, an unmaintained town road. From there it’s an easy walk down Hopkinton’s Main Street back to Kimball Lake. Alternatively, turn left on Main Street and walk to Old Putney Hill Road to join the Hopkinton Village Greenway, a 4.5-mile loop that connects the Kimball Lake trails to the trails at Ransmeier Woods and Hawthorne Forest. Walking times: Short yellow loop: 10 minutes; the yellow trail from cabins to New Road: 20 minutes.

Located at 185 Main Street in Hopkinton Village; accessed via the gravel road next to Kimball Lake. Parking is available at the main log cabin.
