Directions to Breakheart Reservation:
From north or south:
Take Rte. 1 to Lynn Fells Parkway exit, follow Lynn Fells Parkway a short distance,
(in vicinity of Target, Marshall's, across from Petrie's Florist),
take a right onto Forest Street. 
The
Park entrance is after Kasabuski Ice Skating Rink.

The park is open year-round from dawn to dusk. 

Breakheart Reservation is a 640-acre hardwood forest with jagged, rocky
outcroppings, two fresh-water lakes, and a rambling section of the
Saugus River. 
Seven rocky hills, over 200
feet high, provide vistas of
Boston, southern New Hampshire
and central
Massachusetts.  An extensive
trail system through the woodlands guides
visitors to various areas of the
reservation.  Fishing in Silver and Pearce Lakes, hiking
the trails and
bird watching by the Saugus River are popular year-round activities.

The reservation is closed to vehicles year round, providing a fresh air
atmosphere for visitors. 
Parking is available at the Forest Street
parking
lot in Saugus,
and the Northeast Vocational School parking lot in Wakefield.

The supervised swimming area at Pearce Lake, one of the few fresh- water
swimming spots north of Boston, draws crowds in the summer. 

In addition
to its natural resources, the reservation has a
rich cultural history.
