I took another hike in mid fall hoping to catch some more nice late fall foliage and was not dissapointed. It's an easy walk but rewarding esp in a warm sunny November day and with all the colors of fall still around. I like how pretty these berry trees along the path, I don't know the name but they're quite picturesque.

Nice place for a leisurely stroll. Can spend 30 minutes or 2 hours. Fall colors are awesome!

Great hike with Richard, Macy and Gronk!

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

a lot of tree roots and rough rocks if you are trying to go for a run.

Not really hiking. A nice walk around the lake.

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.

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.

Lovely hike!

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.

One of my favorites to go on with my 6 year old. She is a trooper, don’t let her age fool you. Last time we saw wild turkeys and a deer mid day. Beautiful views.

This is one of the most scenic trail in the Middlesex Fells Reservation especially on the eastern side of the loop. The sunset from here is pretty spectacular as I've had a chance to catch a few. It is worth it to do the loop at the bulge at the top of the trail and extend the loop to over 3 miles. The tip of the bulge is quick scenic looking southward over South Reservoir.

This is by far my favorite trail in the Boston area especially for evening walk. The sunset view from here is simply sublime and the views is unbeatable. And on windy days you are treated to wind surfers doing stunts on the bay. There is a nice children's playground and a really cool clam shack called Sullivan. I also enjoy watching planes go by at really close level from here.

And from the pier you can see all kinds of boats go in and out of the harbor. I enjoy watching those dinner or party boat cruise go by. The only minus is that it gets much windier than anywhere else in Boston.

I love the upper pond is nice peaceful hiking

I definitely enjoyed hiking here. lots of nice trails to explore

Fun for kids!

If you feel as though you aren’t seeing marks on the trees, don’t worry, keep looking...especially if you see many fallen trees around!

This is a good easy going trail in the area. Pearce Lake in particular is very scenic especially for sunset in the evening. The upper pond is good for swimming. The whole loop will give you a solid workout and the paved road is a nice touch making it good for family with strollers as well.

Flat trail, nothing special. Wouldn’t go here unless you live really close to it. There are better trails around.

Great hike for the whole family, kids really had a great time.

Great diversity in trail difficulty/terrain and some nice views of Boston skyline make this an ideal trail running or hiking location. When I ran out to the marsh/bog section there were at least 4 snakes slithering about on the boards, which was pretty cool.

Simple easy trail!

Entered at the Pennybrook Road entrance (ample parking) and explored the Undercliff Path, Dungeon Road, Cooke Road, Cornell Path, and Jackson Path. Easy hiking, although watch your footing on some of the rockier trails! Dungeon Rock is very interesting. There is a metal door in the crevice of the rock. The metal stairs inside lead down to a winding tunnel carved out in the 1600s and 1800s (look up the strange history of this place). If you’re going to go down into the tunnel, wear good footwear (slippery) and take a headlamp (dark). Steel Tower is cool too with great views of the surrounding area (including the Boston skyline).

Nice, well marked trail with nice lake views along the Ridgeline Trail. Good rock bounding moments too.

I was in Boston for a conference and looking for a nice, easy trail to ride a rented bicycle. This was a perfect little excursion. It was very easy to get to, the trail is paved, and there are accessible beach areas. There are also public restrooms and a snack bar. Very nice!

We went mountain biking on this trail. It wasn't a long ride, with a bit uphill and downhill. Not very crazy. Suitable for beginners. The trail is quiet. Nice scenary!

One of the best hiking trail in the Boston area. The views is absolutely incredible and the sunset is wonderful too. This trail is relatively short so I usually combine it with other trail.

I also seldom complete this trail without a detour up Bear Hill as well. I enjoy the climb and the view from Bear Hill tower. And other times, I combine it with the trail that goes through the Middle and South Reservoir as well.

Beautiful hike and lake that you can swim in it during summer.
