Which pretty much covered all the hiking trails in the park. Some of the sceneries along the trail were beautiful.Tamara K. on Nobscot Reservation - Tip...4 months agohikingThe Tipping Rock was awesome. I loved the landscape.

I was expecting more flowers in bloom, but maybe it was too early with spring being so late this year. Part of the trails were closed due to a microburst. Big tree uprooted and they needed to clean the area up.Stephen Lewis on Assabet River National Wi...1 year agoSoooooo many mosquitoesAndrey O on Assabet River National Wi...1 year agowalkingI really like this place as it's one of the few spots within reasonable driving distance from the city where you can't hear any roads or highways. There are plenty of trails and a lake. You can make your hike anywhere from 2 to 10+ miles long. Keep in mind that the northern section (north of White Pond Road) is closed to hiking. The trails are wide and mountain biking is allowed on most. There's plenty of wildlife to be seen if you stay still for a few minutes. There are 50 munitions bunker dating to WWII present in the refuge. Some may find these a bit creepy, especially on an overcast day, but I think they're a surreal glimpse into history.Douglas Clair on Nobscot Reservation - Tip...2 years agohikingTippling Rock is a large Granite Boulder. It was split by my Grandfather. He did it using a 'star drill bit'. A star drill is a piece of steel about 14" long. At one end it is shaped into a cross and each of the edges of the cross are sharpened into a chisel shape. You place the cross on the rock and pound on it with a hammer, turning it back and forth as you go. If you have an assistant you have them pour water into the hold to flush out the bits of rock. The process drills a hole the width of the cross into the rock. He then poured water into each of the holes he had made and then pounded pegs into the holes. The water pressure built up inside the holes as the pegs were forced into them splitting the boulder.Jessica Cronin on Garden in the Woods Trail4 years agohikingEasy stroll. When you first enter there is a bulletin board that is updated frequently showing what is currently in bloom. Jay K on Nobscot Reservation - Tip...4 years agohikingI like the trail alot. It's not that hard to follow the trail just look for the single white markers. Double markers indicate a junction! It's a great hike from the Tippling Rock parking lot to Nobscott Hill. Walk it at a quick pace and you'll get a good workout! No GPS needed, just follow the markers and the trail. I've walked it multiple times and enjoyed it lots.
