hiking

This hike is a decent length for children. There are some steep climbs. Overall it is a rocky hike. I would not suggest jogging or running it. The waterfall was dry in August.

The hike was not very challenging. It should be rated "easy". The trail marked very well. There appeared to once be a water fall along the trail, but it has since dried out.
I can see why people have not posted pictures for this trail.... Because there is not much to post about

Great place for handicap accessibility boardwalks, blind rope tour at the beginning. Then it gets woodsy. Great visuals and an easy nature walk.

hiking

Since I live locally this is the easiest trail to my house. Cons: The parking is behind the Stop and Shop on Grafton Street, tends to be an area with local kids drink and hang out in their cars. Also not a lot of trail options, I tend to do 2-3 loops and hit all the small trails in the center or go on "Closed Trails" that go by the railroad tracks. Pros: 1/4 mile from my house and the trails are quiet for being in such a populated area.

walking

Actually would give these trails 4.5 stars and note that they're really more extensive than the map reflects. Broad Meadow is absolutely breathtaking in the Fall and I feel like it's kind of one of Worcester's hidden treasures. The play areas near the main entrance are excellent for kids, and the extended trails have a lot to offer hikers and walkers. I've now walked and run these trails (yes, run--I'm not sure you're supposed to, but I love trail running) in all 4 seasons in the wind, rain and snow and find something new to enjoy every time I go. I'd only knock off a 1/2 star because the posted Audubon society rules for the trails are A. not widely distributed throughout the trail system and B., a little overly restrictive (technically you're not even supposed to jog there--though I do and see others running in all seasons--or even use electronic devices, if I read the sign right. The latter is just silly these days). I've spotted garter snakes, turtles, herons, foxes and wild turkeys. This is also a great place for photography, particularly in the fall. I'm grateful it's here.
