Starting from my home at the Dover side of Pine Street you've got 10 min to bike to the top of Snow Hill then another 10 min to get to the top of Cedar Hill (Rocky Woods) then another 10 min to get to the top of Noanet Peak. I got the first two, have to rethink my way up Noanet. I will add Pegan Hill next and give myself another 10 min to do Quatre Femmes! I'd add Miller Hill but somebody built a mansion up there.

Great first time here. Did the green trail. Didn't get lost. Will come back and try the red trail next. Trail markings were good.

I would have been quite happy with 500' elevation gain, which isn't so easy to find, so when my AT summary said 600' I was pleasantly surprised! It took 4.5 miles. Perfect place to get some hill runs in.

This was marked by someone who has never hiked. I don’t have any other explanation. The first time I went around I got off trail about 4 times I had to backtrack and by the end lost the trail completely, ended up on someone’s driveway and took that out. I thought I could go the opposite way to see where I went wrong and instead ended up taking a big circle back to the parking lot.
I have been hiking for over 30 years and never had a more frustrating experience than this loop. The blue seems what you follow when you start and then the yellow comes out of nowhere. There are probably 50-100 trails that branch off for access from peoples homes.
I wanted to love this because it’s so close to home but it’s awful and I’ll only ever go back for kayaking.

Rocky Woods is a wonderful, quiet spot to enjoy nature - and that on the edge of a heavily settled area. I’ve explored these trails many, many times and always find it restorative.

Nice wide and well marked trails. The woods were nice but the view at the peak was nothing special. It was a nice afternoon walk in the woods!

Awesome

Well kept trails, great variety of terrain, dotted with ponds. Be sure to take a map! So many trails, you can make it a different hike every time.

The trail is scenic and its around 8 miles. Follow the yellow markings on trees as the trails are not marked well. Shoutout to the app the map and gps tracking helped us. There are too many mosquitoes, carry insect repellant and hiking gear.

Really pretty but wish there was more shade.

Love this place. Nice place to get out in the woods on a regular basis.

Beautiful views, not as busy as I thought it would be. Peaceful

A great day for a hike in the woods. We did 5.5 mile hike and enjoyed the different trails. Some of the rocky inclines were tough to navigate but a fun day for sure!

A nice walk on good long trails. Has decent views of Boston on a rock plateau which I cool, and a cute little waterfall. Not strenuous, and nice that dogs can be off leash. Parking can be a little painful if busy.

I started in Franklin and went out and back just a couple miles. Path was nice (some crushed gravel, roots, leaves and then I hit pavement at the very end of my route). Couple of areas that split off and I was a bit confused which path to take but only made one mistake.
Small knats didn’t bother me but could have done without the horse flies that bit me. Ouch!

Great trail, pretty technical and difficult. Definitely find a map, or bring a gps. But will definitely do it again.

Enjoyable and relaxing for a myriad of activities. Very beautiful

Gorgeous hike with many ladyslipper orchids to be spotted along the trails. Some fun, easy bouldering to be found as well. Will be going back to explore further in the very near future!

The beavers were out today, first I've ever seen the whole family together. The Mom and Pop and the two little ones were foraging on lily pads. They were fun to watch, they were right in front of me munching on the pads. The little guys whimpered a bit too, I've never heard that before (sounded like a baby, somewhat). I've been running in here for 20 years or so and this is only the 2nd time I've seen the beavers out, the last time 3 years ago. It's clear they're here you just don't see them much. Soooo coooool.

Enjoyable and pretty easy hike. There were quite a lot of bugs in some areas (this is end of May 2018). But I will definitely be back here again.

This is a nice relatively easy trail, yet the 7 mile loop can be very confusing. The trails, although marked, are not very well laid out, and if it wasnt for the Alltrails app and gps, we would have been 'lost several times'. Make sure you have the alltrails app to navigate properly. With that said, we had a fun day with a relatively easy dog friendly hike/walk!

Lots of fun to hike! Great view from top of Noanet Peak. Be sure to bring bug spray though.

Great hiking trail but is definitely NOT 6.6 miles! It's 8 miles give or take and 3 hours around. The view of the lake is beautiful! Wear hiking boots because you go thru muddy wet terrain.

Very easy and nice hike through perfectly groomed trails that are well posted throughout. Great hike anytime.

I really enjoyed this hike. I agree with the others, it is closer to an 8 mile walk, not 6. It was over 3.5hours to walk it. A few tricky spots over muddy creeks but probably due to recent rain.

rough terrain in some areas, and some small inclines, but quite pretty and well kept
