This trail loop is just over one mile long. The route takes you to the top of Mount Ward Hill where you'll find a bench underneath a large tree.
Easy trail. Well marked. Good for trail running if you want a short quick one. Not too many rocks and roots. just enough to give you a bit of practice on this type of obstacle while trail running. pretty scenic, a bit of a climb up to the top but not too bad of a descent if you do the loop. watch out in the fall after the leaves come down. they're really slippery especially on the downhills!
This is an easy walk. Family, fishing, and dog friendly BUT the trails are poor the area is more used as an off leash dog swimming area. The area gave me an off feeling and some people had no control of their dogs. I did not let mine off leash. I won't go back.
Zero Stars. Used the App to find a quick easy trail. Was grown in and covered with poison ivy. Ended up going off trail because the trail wasn't marked. Ended up near a NStar station with a live electrical fence.
