Nice trail. Pretty scenery. The first part is close to a the road so the sound of traffic was pretty loud however as you progress you can’t hear it. The paths are narrow and wind a lot which I like.

Not a bad first experience with this app! Trail not well travelled so it had a nice trail breaking serenity to it as I divined the route a bit. Trail isn’t always totally obvious but this app kept me on it at times I questioned it. Just on my way out as if it were a karmic gift for getting out hiking/snowshoeing by myself today I saw the biggest pileated woodpecker I might’ve ever seen. It was like a huge fat crow. Maybe pushing 50 to 60cm it seemed in body length. That alone was worth it! :) Recommended but careful if going soon - the honeycombed snow made footings on slants unreliable at times. Plus 3 today though! Can’t complain! :) Did the loop through the Marsh not just the board walk. Took a couple hours with some selfie and “snack” breaks! ;)

Nice trail back half hilly . There is lots of dogs off the leash and lots of dog

Nice little hike, not overly challenging even for children. I've done it many times over the years, including in the winter (icy on the cliff).

Makes a nice walk or bike ride, but I don't know why it's rated as moderate as it's paved assfault the whole way with minimal hills.

Great little trail to do as part of the glass bottom boat and shipwreck tour. Easy for my then 8 year old and still a nice walk for us old people.
Can be very busy.

We “hiked” this trail on February 18, and there was a good bit of snow on the ground on top of thick layers of ice. I use the word “hike” in quotes because it is basically a straight, flat path with a couple of places where you go uphill. I have no idea where they get off categorizing this trail as hard/black. It is moderate at best, even with a foot of snow on top of layers of ice!

Also, there are NO trail markings; I mean NONE! Zero, zilch, nada! It is not like they are not visible or hard to follow. THERE ARE NONE! So it is super easy to get turned around. We had to use the AllTrails map to make sure we didn’t go in endless circles around the mostly frozen creek. It is pretty in the winter and I’m assuming it is very pretty when the weather is warmer, but this isn’t hiking on a hard trail by any stretch of the imagination. It is a walk in the woods where you will get lost if you aren’t following GPS on a map! We finished the loop in a fraction of the average time it takes us to hike (we hike regularly but we are not professionals).

FYI, as of 2/18/18, the bridge at the beginning of the trail is out; it has partially collapsed into the creek below). But it felt solid enough so we just walked over it and we were fine as there was no other way apparent to us to cross the creek. I was shocked that there were no markings whatsoever and no maintenance of the trail. Too bad! Won’t “hike” this trail again.

Short hike but full of adventures! A lot of climbing and areas to explore! You’ll definitely need hiking boots for winter, there’s some slippery and icing areas. Be sure to go counter-clock wise through the path.

We take our dog to this trail year round and we love it. We have used our snowshoes but it’s well packed down to hike in boots. There are several little side trails and it’s good excersise. Not very flat though so if you are walking with someone that struggles with hills, it’s probably not the trail for them. It’s very pretty and peaceful.

Beautiful cross country skiing today. The car GPS understands that 1822 Spragues Rd Cambridge is the parking lot, though there are two lay-bys at trail heads on the other side of the park on Beke Rd.

many steps, beautiful view

This is my staple trail. I do the main loop about 60x a year!

Always love Mono Cliffs! It was snowing and beautiful up at the Lookout off McCarsten Lake. Magic.

We had wanted to go to Raven trail however it was closed due to issues with beetles. This park was just down the street and we were traveling with our big pup. Much to his delight, the start of the trail is also a giant off leash dog park! The trail conditions were amazing and loved the side trails that took through the woods

-10C with a strong wind out of the west made it pretty hard going with drifting snow across the trail, particularly in those sections of trail that were exposed to the open fields. Never the less it was an enjoyable outing. I will be sure to return in better weather to complete the full out and back.
