Very nice, clean trail. Pretty level train, nice overlooks into the marshes. No charge to park but on a busy day, I imagine there would be a wait to park!

Great scenic drive! So many spots to pull over and see the amazing views. Most of the leaves are gone, but this dive was stunning. Lots of campgrands and hiking trails. Already made plans to go back.

This trail is ABSOLUTELY pristine. What an amazing place to enjoy nature. ESPECIALLY THIS TIME OF YEAR!!!
Cant wait to check it out in the winter!


Easy and rewarding.

Glorious views, pack a lunch and go on a day trip!

Just a nice short walk through the woods around Echo Lake. Nothing special but still enjoyable especially on an awesome crisp New England fall day.

Ring trail still in good shape late October; rocks, roots, & mud appear to be the reason for the moderate rating. 2 mile trail at an easy pace, just over an hour.

beautiful drive. be sure to stop at the roadside trails.

nice little hike. a little icy today. snow and rainy mix.

Hiked the boulder loop and brook trail today. It was beautiful and the foot traffic was very light. weekdays seem to be an ideal time to hike Mt Major. The summit was freezing and windy, but the fall colors were still beautiful.

This was a nice trail to walk. The waterview was pleasant. Spotted a couple toms and a doe. Unfortunately picked up multiple ticks also so do a thorough tick check when your done.

Easy, well maintained trail. They have some nice educational posts about the surrounding marshes and estuaries. I went on a weekday and it was still moderately busy, I imagine on weekends it gets crowded.

A very satisfying hike. Not to challenging, but is a steady uphill hike. At the summit you’ll find lots of cool information like guides about the wildlife and trees/plants. Nice views too.

Nice hike, river view and historic markers. We took our 4 year old grandson and had fun teaching him how to identify the different types of trees and leaves, moss mushrooms. Picnic tables and small grills available and a playground. Only complaint would be about the hikers that let their dogs off leash.

Great place to enjoy fall foliage colors. It is very crowded during peak fall foliage and the ticket line could take 1 hr, but it is worth the wait. Pathways are well maintained.

Pleasant, easy hike to get to and from the falls. The area of the falls was more than we expected. Our 50 lb pup had no troubles.

One of the best hikes in the Lake area. It is definitely more on the easy side, but it offers breathtaking views of the surrounding lakes with minimal effort.

Great place ❤️

Easy trail, quick payoff if you only have a little time to spare. We're not experienced hikers, saw ages 2 to 72 walking with no problem. Falls are worth the short walk. Pit toilets at entrance, $5/vehicle fee.

Really nice easy hike with beautiful views in the Fall. Had the place to myself on a drizzly day!

As expected - a perfect place to enjoy the foliage! Gorgeous views and waterfalls, and the wooden decks are very well maintained! But note that this place is super popular in the fall and prepare to stand in the line for approx.30mins to buy tickets, unfortunately you can’t buy them online. But the trail is definitely worth the wait, you will love it!

Gorgeous fall color and waterfalls.

awesome trail not hard at all easy hike

Took the yellow trail up which was awesome for the dog lots of flowing water and big rocks to make it easy to climb up. After reaching the summit looped back down on blue, which was shorter but much steeper with a lot of smooth rock. To say the least it was not as enjoyable back down but the way up was great

Very family friendly, my 1 1/2 to had a great time! Stunning views of natural pools

Beautiful views for minimal effort. Don't expect any challenge unless you are a very new hiker, the trail should be rated as easy. Gorgeous though!
