It's a very pleasant place to walk. The AllTrails app makes it easy to know where you are and how to get back to the parking area. As mentioned in the description, the rhododendrons must be spectacular in season.

Wooded and river. Be sure to check for tides.

Just went here today and the trail looks great, but dogs are NOT allowed on this trail. They are only allowed on the beach in specific areas. . Also, the Crane Beach parking attendant charges you an extra $3 for bringing a dog. The beach was beautiful, but just a heads up if you were thinking about doing this trail with a dog.

Ring trail still in good shape late October; rocks, roots, & mud appear to be the only reason for the moderate rating. 2 mile trail.

It's definitely not moderate. This trail is an easy hike or bike. Nothing difficult other than a lot of roots. Nice scenery, couldn't hear traffic, not too many people. Nice walk.

This was a nice long walk. The hills can be a challenge but worth it in the end.

Beautiful, but very easy to get lost. Not a well marked trail. Has some cool sights, like the rocks with words written on them and the bases of homes that were once built there.

A very satisfying hike. Not to challenging, but is a steady uphill hike. At the summit you’ll find lots of cool information like guides about the wildlife and trees/plants. Nice views too.

Very nice place to take a walk. Even though it states "dogs must be leashed", there were looses dogs and inconsiderate dog owners. I guess the rules only apply to some people.

We took the ring trail to witch havel which takes you to the top. We were there for about an hour and a half including about 20 minutes at the top. There are lots of other trails and you can make it a longer hike if desired. all trails are very well marked. I wouldn't say it's an "easy" hike but we are beginners and we did it no problem

Me and my dog loved the place !

I walk my two dogs almost every day and I love this place. They are off leash (like most every dog we see) and I am sure they consider this park the equivalent of heaven for dogs. Depending on what trailhead you choose you may run into more people/dogs, but never over crowded. Highly recommend it.

Nice and easy. Great all times of the year.

One of my favorite hikes. Easy and kid friendly. The brows are terrific!!

Poor directions to trail head. Lots of rail trail walking, better route for bikers.

Hiked Ring Trail to Witch Hazel then Blueberry Bluff to Ring Trail back down; easy and enjoyable. It took us about an hour round trip including exploring the Big A trail around the summit.

Great hike, nice views for such a short trip.

Great trail to walk with the dog. Labeled well. Enjoyed our walk meet a couple other dogs on the route. So nice that they have a big parking lot for people to park in. Quick reminder remember bug spray.

minutes from my house and my dog Elvis and I go almost daily. Endless trails, not many people. Bugs can get bad in areas but worth it!

Nice little hike. Took Ring trail to Witch Hazel to summit. Mostly very easy and a good hike for kids. View from the top is terrific with good visual aid to help identify directions and points of interest. Lots of roots and rocks so a little rough for anyone with any walking challenges.

Note to dog owners: Please read park website carefully. These directions will take you to the main park entrance, where during the summer dogs are not allowed. You have to go to the trailhead off of Reservation Rd, which is 10 miles away from the main entrance.

Great hike! Lots of trails so you can make your own adventure. Hardly saw anyone. Varied terrain. Loved it!

Pleasant hike.

First time going, theres a couple different parking spots with trail heads, but we chose to park at the lot at the bottom of Mt. Agamenticus look out [I believe you can drive to the top and park up there as well]. BEWARE of the bathrooms. My friend used the one at the bottom of the hill - No lights and poop all over the seat. Some trails are beginner friendly where others I'd rate moderate. We hiked to all 3 mountains; the first being the one with an actual view [if it's not foggy]. The second has no view but still has a sign labeling it Second Hill [LOTS of ants all over the rocks] and the Third One isn't even marked so we walked right past it [after taking Third Hill trail which actually ended up being a longer way - Easily could of took Ledge trail and been there sooner lol]. By the time we realized we had passed it we already had been hiking over 2.5 hours in the heat and was getting eaten alive by bugs [Yes, we put bug spray on before hand, but must've sweated it off] so we decided not to turn around. We thought we'd take the short way back, but ended up at Old Mountain Road. Used our "Maps" app on our phone to navigate the remaining 1+ mile walk back [on the road] to the car. Took us 3 hours to hike 4.35 miles.
