The walk to the falls itself is nothing much to speak of, but the falls are amazing! Excellent spot for some photo-ops. Trails are well maintained and nice and wide. Good for a casual stroll, particularly with pups.

Great trail....starts steep right off the bat. Have to cross the water a few times getting to the top. Great views of the upper falls. AT to Everett is steep but worth the hike. Ran / Hiked rt 41 to Everett and back in 2 1/2 hrs.

Easy side of moderate with lots of roots, mud, flat rocks.

Beautiful area. But the trails were not marked well at all. I saw trail names and colors painted on trees, but not at all intersections. There were a few intersections where we had to just pick a way to go. Went with three other adults and a baby. Do Not Bring a baby carriage unless it’s used in off roading and rough terrain. Lots of hills, but great for a first timer without a baby carriage

This is a great place to start off roading. I just started and went there with my buddy and there were some nice mud puddles and some rocky areas... definitely easy but can give you an idea of what you need to get more difficult off roading in.

Great hike with Richard, Macy and Gronk!

Excellent trail, very people and dog friendly. Hike it early as it gets quite busy after 11, especially on weekends. A very moderate hike that can be made in under two hours. Take the few extra minute to go to East side of peak to get a nicer view to the east. Mt. Wachusetts is prominent to the South, but you have to find just the right spot to see Monadnock to the West. Lots of hawks during migrating seasons.

Great hike! Beautiful scenery!

It’s a great place to go hiking, biking dog walking or running!

Took the clockwise loop up Midstate to Wapack... less steep. Couldn’t see a view from Nuttings Hill but the views from Watatic were very good. I was the only person on the peak when I arrived, 9:30 on a Wednesday, but the parking lot was filling up as I was leaving. Definitely one of the better views in Ma. Trails can be very confusing without a GPS. A few more signs at the various junctions would be helpful.

Great hike. A good, challenging trail. Gets steep quickly; it isn't long before you see beautiful wildlife and waterfalls. Keep going up to Mt. Everett where you can catch some good views.

Did the Wapack trail on Saturday. Nice steep climb and beautiful views!

We come here weekly and we love it! Trails are marked and well maintained! You hardly see anyone on the trails, you may pass 2/3 other hikers/bikers. After reading other reviews if you’re seriously complaining about bugs in the woods and off leash dogs in a nearly deserted forsest maybe this isn’t the place for you.

Beautiful waterfall, peaceful trails, easy terrain and clearly marked trails and trail maps.

One of the best easy hikes around. Used to always do an out and back trail up Watatic, but I tried this a few weeks ago and again yesterday, and it was great! My hiking partners liked this loop better both times.

I love this path! It’s my go to when I want to walk outside. There can be a lot of people but the ocean views make it worth it.

Short, open, flat and wide trail. Good quick walk with dogs/kids.

Really easy 3-mile loop with several spots for shore access. I enjoy taking a book out on the rocks and enjoying the summer breeze. Great for birding.

Very nice hike but very challenging (my calves were soared the next 3 days). The falls are nice and the upper part past the falls sees a wonderful forest path along the river, a delight! The path to the Appalachian Trail to mount Everett is indeed rocky and steep (strenuous) and views are not really there (unless you got someone to put you on their shoulders :D). Make sure on the way back (close to the parking lot) to take on a a left and cross the river (I kept going straight lost in my thoughts and realized that there was houses that I did not see on the way in and I had to turn back...).
Took me about 2-2h30 to get to Mount Everett with a fairly good pace.

Only downside of this hike is that the peak has no view, they took down the fire tower. Very anticlimactic. Beginning and Middle are 5/5 tho

Wide variety of paths and difficulty for both hiking, trail running and mountain biking. It can be easy to get lost, so be prepared with a trail map if you veer off main loop.

I've been hiking here for probably 15-20 years and have covered most of the trails. I like hiking here BUT there are a few things to take note of. First is that there are a LOT of off leash dogs. My dog doesn't like other dogs, so I can't bring him here because big dogs bounding up to him with no leash scare him. I also run into bikers on the trails that prohibit them pretty often. I also agree with some of the other reviews that it tends to be pretty buggy.

Overall, I agree with most reviews on here, it just depends what things bug you and what things don't. Its pretty well populated so you feel secure but if you're someone who likes secluded hiking, you won't get that until you get back towards route 1 quite a bit. The trails are generally well marked BUT there are a lot of them and they criss cross and overlap a lot so you'll definitely need a map with a marked planned route or a GPS/app to help you out

Good cardio workout for sure

Beautiful and varied terrain. Only got a chance to wander for a bit, but this is definitely a place I want to return to and explore some more.

Very strenuous trail which made it incredibly rewarding. Parked on 41 and walked up to the falls which were really pretty. Kept gong past the campsite (very nice, with a privy, bear box and platforms) and up to the AT for our first time. The AT portion was even steeper and rockier than what came before - I was very grateful for my poles, especially on the way down. As others have said, no view from the top of Mt Everett, but you'll find a great lookout point about 2 minutes past the summit. No bugs at all when we were out, btw, which was a real bonus! This is not a hike for amateurs. Met some AT thru-hikers...AND an enormous angry rattlesnake on the way down!

short and sweet. needs more parking.

Lovely hike!

Tooooo buggy. Started off with all natural bug repellent, did not work. Switched to deep woods Off, did not work. Just ended up turning around. Not to mention the continued Route 1 traffic noise.

grab a map at the entrance or download off the web for Lynn woods. trails are all marked with grid numbers and letters. A lot to explore if you use the grid. watch out for special surprises on the trails from ignorant dog owners, as will as some coyotes. Deer do come out on the day, keep your eyes open.
