Nice trek, even in winter. Some ice but plenty of rocks and roots to keep traction. The Pine Hill Trail up was great and is a work of art!! Wish I had some skis for the way down.

Nice loop, can get muddy sometimes

Beautiful even during winter!

Great view at the top of the Boston Skyline. However, the trails are not well-marked, and they are relatively uninteresting.

Easy walk along the shore...can be very busy in summer. All in all a worthwhile trip.

Got lost a few times (twice) because some markers aren’t as easy to spot but the trail is pretty good. Definitely recommend

great place to get out and enjoy nature and great views

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.

A very good hike. Very wet and muddy but I found it more a moderate hike rather than hard

Just went here today and the trail looks great, but dogs are NOT allowed on this trail. They are only allowed on the beach in specific areas. . Also, the Crane Beach parking attendant charges you an extra $3 for bringing a dog. The beach was beautiful, but just a heads up if you were thinking about doing this trail with a dog.

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

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.

A very easy hike, but really beautiful views. We went during peak fall foliage and it was a pretty amazing sight. You are also able to visit the site of Thoreau’s cabin (there’s also a model of it). It’s $8 to park but there is a pretty nice visitor center and we saw a lot of people swimming at the beaches (even in October).

A beautiful pond with an interesting history, quite crowded however

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

Nice hike close to Boston. There's a surprising variation of terrain and the trails are pretty easy to follow. The summit is a bit disappointing, as its usually crowded and loud, and the views are just so-so. I'd say this is more of a moderate to easy hike. It's a great warm up mountain for hiking season.

Absolutely beautiful, especially on an Autumn or Spring day.

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.

Side trails not really well marked. Short.

Gorgeous, well marked

Beautiful trails and water!!

Took the paved trail. Nice moderately intense hike with a great view at the top!

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

Sooo many trails and not enough trail markers! Glad I had service and could use GPS to get back to the car. Beautiful terrain and scenery! The puppers and I will be back!

Great trail for somewhere to do a hike in the city and get a good workout.

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

Mountain biking trails aren’t marked too well. A good ride with some challenges. Will definitely do it again.

Nice loop trail. First part (when doing the loop counter-clock wise) is a steep climb and scramble to the summit. After a nearly equally steep decline, the middle part of the hike then consists mostly of flat or slowly descending trails through the forest.
The very last part (again, when going counter-clock wise) - quite close to the trail head, but before the fork to the summit ascend - involves scrambling over a boulder field with lots of big, sharp-edged rocks ... a nice challenge, but I wouldn’t recommend that part for hiking with kids.
