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.

Great hike with Richard, Macy and Gronk!

Excellent trail. Well marked with some nice views along the way. Might be better suited as an Easy than Moderate, but a really enjoyable walk and hike. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Went here with a 9 and 3 year old hoping for an easy path- there were too many places that the 3 year could not handle. Great trail, had to stop 1/4 of the way and turn back bc kids got tired.

Will definitely come back, sans kids.

Very easy trail if you hike like we do.

Many of the paths are overgrown with thorns!!

Many of the paths are poorly marked and could be quite confusing if you don’t pay attention.

Gorgeous! Highly recommend.

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

$8 pp for non members, kids free

Would have probably been more fun going clockwise, but great trails. Easy to feel lost in nature right outside a city.

Very high traffic area. So much to look at like Boston views the ocean we even saw a deer. High intensity hills every so often and so oretty in the fall. Deff on of my favorite spots!

Me and my dog loved the place !

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.

Gorgeous, well marked

Perfect for what we needed - an easy hike with pretty foliage.

Loved it!!

Not too challenging, but uphill for the first half mile or so. Trails are very well marked. Maps along the way. Some traffic.

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.

Wrapped in the real America...not tRUMPs amerika
You can feel the history on every trail and every building

Not technical mostly flats some ups and some downs. Only come here if your looking for an easy relaxing ride. Not fun for what I was looking for

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.

The trails are ok, but very poorly marked, particularly the one with the red blaze. Decent option if you are looking for something close to the city.

World's End is beautiful! Yes it costs $6 pp if you're not a member. It costs money to maintain green space. They just moved the gate this summer, so they are working out some logistics... the gate used to be at the entrance but the locals complained. Lovely spot for all - young and old, 2 and 4 legs. Views of Boston. You can get more than 3 miles if you take some of the side trails. Don't miss the Rocky area.

Lovely hike!

A nice mix of terrain. Really relaxing and enjoyable. A few areas of moderate scrambling, but mostly an easy hike. There’s a few areas where trail markers could be better placed. The switchover from the skyline to the green dot trail is a bit vague.

This is one of my favorite trail in the Blue Hills. I especially like Eliot Tower the most. A great place to have a picnic in the picnic area.

Great view of the Boston skyline from Eliot Tower. Thought it was going to be a rock scramble at 0.7 miles in, ended up being a nice rock staircase instead.

Well marked trails. Not really hiking yet not really a simple flat walk. I would say it’s on the high end of easy to the very low end of moderate. It was very nice but I have similar walks closer to my home so I personally wouldn’t go out of my way to go again.

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.

Who chargers people for a walk?

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.
