I enjoyed this trail for a family hike. Wide enough for us all to walk together. It is good for dogs too! A bit icy. Only one big hill st the end of the loop. Good hike fir hikers of all levels

A wonderful history lesson surrounded by the beauty of Concord. Where it all began. Very sentimental. It was an honor to walk in the steps of the minute men and I enjoyed all of the detailed signs pointing out everything. Lovely bridge with birds landing and making for a great picture by the lake. Enjoyable! Not difficult at all. Nice flat surfaces mostly.

Markings could be better.

Trail is clearly marked and I saw tons of wildlife! Great quick hike

If your looking for a workout look no further. Started at Holyoke range state park and trekked to mt. Holyoke in Skinner state park across Seven sisters ect. Did hike early Nov. found the trail to be quiet and challenging with leaves and wet terrain. I loved it. I’m a hiker who likes to make good time. My poles were a true asset. Took me 5 hrs for the 11.5. Trails are marked well. Views are mediocre to be honest. But the challenge is worth it.

Beautiful fall hike! Too late for aspens but still a nice, moderate hike

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

Quite pleasant. Strange having the private property up near Gibbs. Watch out for the "Attack Dogs". Another hiker told me Raytheon owns the property. Will be back to do the trail down to the reservoir. Just do it!

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.

Love this trail. Did it 2 weekends in a row. 9.75 miles from trailhead to summit and back.

Nice trail to go when camping at Bug Meadows. I tried from Blackrock to AT then loop.
Coming up to Lewis Spring trail is not easy. I recommend to do it counter-clockwise from Blackrock
There is no real 'fall' veiw but it's still nice view.

First time unplanned exploration so this review is just based on a very small piece of the forest. We spent most of our time on the old cart roads but the few single track trails we found we're more of a 4 star rating. Whisteling Caves Trail was the highlight of this short hike. l look forward to exploring more.

Great day. chilly winds but beautiful views from the summit. pompelly is an easy to moderate hike. sharp elevation gain at two major spots but managable.
note to self:Brooks Cascadia trail runners are miserable!

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.

Did Pumpelly for the first time today and I’m in love. It definitely requires endurance and very good traction but it’s well worth the work, and not just for the summit. Once you hit the first vista about halfway up, the views stay with you for a good 90% of the remaining hike, and they are unbelievable. Today was sunny but it had rained the day before, which made it really tricky through the woods where it was muddy and slippery, especially the steeper rocky parts on the descent. It wasn’t a problem at all on the more exposed upper half of the trail, though. I had so much fun scrambling and rock hopping up top. It took me about 4.5 hours including lots of pauses to take pictures (which will never do it justice!), and a stop for lunch. On a beautiful October Tuesday, I only encountered two people on the trail, and maybe 6-8 folks at the summit. Perfect day!

The trail rating is not accurate. As a mountain bike trail it’d be moderate, as a hiking trail it’s easy. The network of little unmarked trails are very easy to get disoriented in. Check your position often because you WILL go off the intended path

Great trail. Was 9.5 miles for me. Lots of rock scrambles. Weather was perfect. Pretty busy at the peak. And a bonus, I met a Pompelly when finished the trail. Granddaughter of the man who founded the trail. How cool is that.

This trail is closer to 9 miles. The first section of the trail is easy with basically no elevation gain. The rest of the trail gains elevation pretty moderately throughout the summit. The most challenging aspect of the trail was that it was wet and slippery, making the rockier parts take longer than they typically might. I completed the hike on Columbus Day, and I hardly saw any other people on this trail until I got close to the summit (even then it was still not very crowded given the weather). Unfortunately there were no views during the hike due to the thick fog, but there was quite a bit of exposed ridge line that would probably have great views on a clearer day. Even with no visibility, it was still a great hike and a good way to train hiking in slippery conditions!

Great property, great trek. Parked at the Lyman St. trailhead then went as far north as I could. Turned back to the south and was surprised to see part of the trail was directly above the Wachusett Tunnel which carries all of Boston's water from the reservoir. Continued south on the Berlin Road Trail and took a break at the Howard's Ridge junction. The southern part of the property appears a bit more interesting compared to the northern section, the Howard Ridge specifically (but it's small, you can take it all in). Went to the South Overlook next then up Tyler to the summit then over to the ancient Pine Tree before looking out from Oberg's Vista. I took the wrong trail down then bushwacked back and found a cool, antique plow out in the middle of what was likely a pasture back in the day. Might call the Berlin Historical Society and let them know. I marked it on my map. Great property, just do it!

I parked on Mill Road instead of the address provided. There was ample room for parking and finding the trailhead was easy. Hike was very quiet, alot of solitude. Didn't see anyone for the first hour I was out there. Kind of lost where the trail loops and gets you the turned around. Views along the water where beautiful, especially with the leafs starting to change. Enjoyed this trail.

Beautiful trail. It was moderately busy but it is to be expected at the start of a holiday weekend. Loved being surrounded by all the history.

First couple miles is moderate then starts getting pretty technical the last 2 miles to summit. Fantastic 360° views from the top highly recommended for a day hike!

Decent rail trail. A bit short for biking. Better suited for walking/running. No bathrooms at either trail head. There is a johnny on the spot in a parking lot in downtown Hudson. Otherwise you need to invade one of the businesses along the trail.

Multiple street crossings. But they all have pedestrian activated lights and drivers are respectful and stop.

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

Good trail, good time of year for it. Took the doggo. You pay for parking at the park entry station right at the trailhead, like $4-8, they might have you park across the street from the trailhead and walk over. We got to the peak of the hill in no time, so we explored the surrounding trails. It was calm, but a bit lackluster.

Perfect jogging route if you prefer a paved path. Very gentle inclines. Very well maintained. Not at all crowded on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. There are benches and fences at intervals that are handy for stretching. Road crossings have signals that give crossers the right of way. I parked in the municipal lot on Jefferson St. behind Kelleher Field.
