Hackett Hill Trail

Hackett Hill Podcast Trail Tour

With a presence in Hyde Park dating back to the mid-1800s, generations of Hacketts earned a name as some of the region’s leading philanthropists. The Hackett Trail takes you on a historic path through farm and forest, on land that was donated by the family for the express purpose of recreation and youth activities. The trail also takes you to the site of an important archeological discovery: a once-thriving African-American community that prospered in the 1700s.
