Wet/ icy hike. Definitely wear crampons if you’re hiking during the winter. It’s a nice long hike with steady inclines. Very enjoyable.

Did this today Jan 18. Very Icy and snow on top of Everett. About four inches. Didn’t go to Race but a tough and challenging hike none the less. Note to self: this time of year bring crampons.

icy at times, had to stay left or right of trail. had to go slow. alaways a fun hike.

Beautiful water views. Perfect walking area for a dog.

This was a good short hike. Markings are clear along the trail, however, some of them can be pretty fairly spaced apart so just be aware - I went off trail a couple of times but didn’t get turned around too bad.

Great quick hike beautiful waterfall. There was a dusting of snow there today

Nice quick hike with beautiful views of the valley.

Great views. Short steep ascent, but would rate this more intermediate than hard.

amazing scenic view when you make it to the top

Amazing hike up Mount Watatic, a little strenuous but a very nice view from the peak. You can even see the Boston Skyline from the top of the second peak

Decent afternoon walk in early January. Fewer ticks in winter

Short hike but great view. The watch tower was all locked up at top unfortunately when I went today

on Red Fox Trail Loop

The small waterfall was a nice suprise. There was some elevation which made for a good workout but the trail was poorly marked which caused for a lot of stopping to confirm the proper direction.

Steep and rocky on Norwuttuck Mt. If following MM trail (whiteblaze) you will end up on Long Mountain which is not as high of an elevation but a long steady incline as the name suggests. I tried using the south side trails that are "blue blazed" but these are poorly marked and the trade off for a shortcut through lower elevation is really that you and up walking in swampy areas and along creek beds. Poorly marked...half blue half orange with white arrow. The end of the MM white blaze goes through private property and down a steep embankment and empties onto Bay rd. Past the storage area the trail continues across rd.

Great dirt road, enough elevation change to make it aerobic and long enough to be fun. Lots of friendly people and dogs. Make sure you take a few of the side trails. Mammoth Rock is very interesting and Dean Pond is beautiful.

trail can be pretty difficult at first if you start with the white trail, but completing the loop proves much easier for a relaxing and rewarding return back. a great hike, not more than 2 hours or so round trip if you’re going slow!

Agree very rocky. Must wear sturdy shoes with good grip. A great workout though I love the varied up and down. Great hike to keep in shape for summer hikes in the Whites. Love that it’s so close. I’m 59 and not an athlete by any stretch. You can do this.

First time here but I will come back again. Trails are not well marked so I was grateful for the all trails app on my phone. Quiet and not busy perfect for reflection.

Made two loops, first just followed loop and park trails around, second followed swamp, mammoth rock, grouse, and whistling cave.

Park and Loop trails are nice and easy to walk around, great starting point, probably 3 stars on their own.
The real fun were the outer-lying trails, definitely 4 starts, would most certainly go back. Still fairly easy trails, mostly level terrain excluding a few areas, but much more enjoyable.

Really good. Easier than moderate except for a couple of steep climbs.

A beautiful place to visit even in winter. I bet it a great place to hike in summer and in fall. Pretty easy hike.

Beautiful trail. I did not get to go past the falls but will definitely be back to finish.

Good length trail for a dog walk but be aware the back side is wet and muddy in December and your dog will be caked in it. Perfect summer trail

perfect, quick winter day hike.
a little icy at top along red trail

Great relaxing walk for the whole family. Not very scenic, but still fun. Lots of rocks and hills!

Great hike and views. Very rocky and steep. Coming down treacherous if you are not sure footed.

Decent views from the falls. Certainly a change from the central mass area landscape. Nice nature walk.

Nice short, easy hike with a great view of Mount Grace, Tully Mountain and Long Pond!

It is not 22 miles and does not go to Connecticut like the map shows. The Snett overlaps into the Blackstone bike path. About 7 miles in you you hit roads then the bike path which is also pathed. A little over three miles out from franklin state forest you hit single track which is not maintained and it’s flat except for the whoop section due to dirt bikes and natural erosion. If you do an out and back connecting the existing SNETT with the Blackstone bike path you can accumulate 22ish miles.
