Typically, these forest preserves are set up deliberately so that you can't drive a car off the road and into the woods. It just leads to kids going in there and starting fires and having drinking parties. At least if they park in a visible location and walk in, it makes it possible to see if someone's there! So almost everywhere, there will be a parking area off the road, and then a strong metal gate that's kept locked. If you want to walk into the woods, you go around the gate. Officially you aren't supposed to be in the woods after dark, but there aren't any police patrolling the trails.

Either the Blue Hills, south of Boston, or Middlesex Fells to the north, would be good for evil deeds in the dark.

Most state parks, I believe, are only for hiking or cycling. Does anyone know a nice forest area near Boston?
Thanks in advance!

The Berkshire's.

The Berkshire's what? The Berkshires' location? It is far too far from Boston for the author's purpose.

Thanks, G1 and ABQConvict!
Yes, maybe the Berkshire' are too far out. Ideally I like it to be in the range of the Boston Homicide range, unless I change it the cops to State police but then need to check if they also cover murder cases. Maybe I just pick the Blue Hills

Also the Lynn Woods. If the OP wants a swampy location (good spot for a murder imo) then the Belle Isle reservation could work.

I looked at Blue hills before but can't remember why I checked for others after. I'll check Harold Parker State Forest in more detail but probably will go with Blue Hills in the end. Need to check google street maps, maybe I even can find a nice little car accessible path into the forest and out of sight from the main roads.
Thanks for the replies, very appreciated!
Ha!

There are so many folks of many of the trails! You could actually write about the southwestern side. There is a trail in Westwood. The reservation abuts the train tracks. Few know about that area. Many are not aware of the cabins in the reservation for the AMC! With some creativity I am sure that you can make something happen.
