Good workout in a relatively short amount of time. Trail is well maintained and there are some nice views at the top. Tends to be very crowded.

Quick & easy...great views!

This trail should be rated hard. It is very very rocky and has many steep grades both up-and-down. It is beautiful but can be challenging. It felt more like I was rock climbing then hiking on many parts of the trail. It is much harder then another trail I took that is rated hard. I'm not sure who does these ratings. A trekking pole would have helped me on this hike.

Very easy trail. Nice view. We saw two tiny turtles.

I’m new to backpacking and I am in training for bigger ,longer hikes. This trail is serving me well. It has many ascents and descents as well as ledge. Well marked . It is taking me between 4-41/2 hours depending on size of my pack.

Great hike and really fun in Spring. If you do the entire round trip, it's 3,160 feet of elevation. Not a moderate hike. How Wolcott gets rated hard, when it's no where's near as long or difficult is beyond me.

Did a loop out in the Indian Brook Trail area. Very cool with a vernal pool to check out too. Noticed a wild turkey in the field, she hung pretty close to the trail so I could check her out. Big bird! This is a great property, check it out.

I walked around Walden Pond, last night, in the rain. It was a transcendent experience. If you have not already, please read Walden by Henry David Thoreau, before visiting this pond.

What a lovely place 5 dollars to get in but worth every penny

Really enjoyed the trails. Ended up doing a 5 mile hike zig zagging down many of the trails that cut through the main circle loop shown on the map.

Lots of variety. Beautiful trail without too much traffic on a Saturday.

fantastic trail with beautiful views

beautiful views. Rocky.
difficult in winter.

Not too hard.

Nice hike, kinda crowded.

Really great hike. Packed snow, trail broken in. Some icy spots, but did great with poles and crampons. Good training for New Hampshire!

Great hike. Don't let the fact that it's in eastern Mass fool you. The round trip hike is all up and down and is more strenuous than you think.

March 4th 2018: This was a beautiful trail, an easy 5 miles. Some elevation at times. Beautiful views of the water. Currently the boardwalk into the water is damaged from the recent storm, and in many areas of the trail there are newly fallen trees. On the last mile of the trail around the pond the entrance is blocked by a giant cluster of fallen trees. I chose to walk on the main road and into the nearby neighborhood to gain access back to rest of the trail. I suspect as the warmest weather approaches the town will make the necessary upkeep from the off season. Highly recommend and would return to despite the current damage.

I run this route regularly and love the ocean views. There were a few puddles along the route today that were leftover from (I'm guessing) a snowstorm that happened a few weeks ago. A lot of families will walk around this route when the weather is nice enough (e.g. today there were a lot of families and it was 45 degrees and sunny). I don't usually see wildflowers, but sometimes there are kite surfers (who can be carried maybe 20 feet up in the air) and Fort Independence is a cool place to visit too.

Always an enjoyable day on this trail.

Excellent easy hike. Didn’t do this exact trail but did 4.5 mile loop so hit the metal (fire?) tower & stone tower

Great walk! If anyone finds a Fitbit along the trail please let Me know here!!!!

Easy, Peaceful Walk. It can, at times, be a bit crowded and there’s always the doggie “land mines” to look out for. Most people do pick up after themselves though.

Hiked this trail in the wintertime following a snowfall and was not disappointed. Tough to believe you can find a serene landscape like this tucked inside the I-95 corridor! Great views and well-marked trails, with a few rocky/scrambling areas and several challenging inclines and descents. Good footwear is a must. Will hike the longer variation next!

a Must do

Beautiful birding, boardwalk, mill pond has many falls, Charles river loop extension is a must.

Easy to get to, beautiful trail, need the GPS to navigate.
