Two Towers Hike is a 6.3 mile out and back trail located near Medford, Massachusetts and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible from March until May. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Great views of Boston and beyond from Two observation towers. Fells is the Saxon word for " rocky, hilly area", the route travels to the higerst points in this section of the reservation, Its rocky and hilly both. On the open areas notice the multitude of scrape marks on the igneous rock, caused by the retreating glaciers. From the two towers get a great view of Boston and the reservation. Youll pass over an old Soap Box Derby track and next to the Sheepfold, where sheep grazed for hundreds of years. Now a popular spot for dogs to run free.
It nice to have these trails so close to the city.
I loved that the trails weren't busy and I could feel like I was out there on my own. Beautiful view from the top, lovely hike. There are harder paths and easier ones to hike although most beginners could certainly make it up!
What a nice place for a good hike not hard at all easy to follow trails with out a map, we will be back in the spring to explore more of this trail system
Had a great hike with the family on this chilly First Day of the New Year! Paths were very icy which for us just added to the adventure. Will be back to do more of the trails!
A nice trail with so many exploring possibilities! I didn't see any trash or glass but did notice a bit of graffiti on all of the structures (bridges, towers etc.). Honestly that didn't take away from the experience for me. I'll definitely be making more trips out to Medford soon!
Considered a "moderate" trail, however compared to any NH hike it's extremely easy. Somewhat marked, but some spots get confusing. Will have to go back sometime as I did not realize it crossed a road
Tremendous hike for being 10 minutes from the city with some great views of the city and the surrounding area both from the towers and some high rock outcroppings. It is true that in the higher trafficked areas there is a good amount of broken glass and trash from kids partying there on the weekends, but only in a few spots. Other than that it is the best place to get a good strenuous hike in any where close to the city, with the Blue Hills being a close second.
