Bring bird seed to feed the birds. we saw many people hand feeding the birds. Great place for families. All kids should check out the Rockery Loop. Picnic tables for lunch.

We really enjoyed this place. Very family friendly and fairly flat terrain that makes for an easy hike. We saw some beautiful wildlife and flowers (turtles, Lillys and Lilly pads, dragon flies, etc). We only hiked about 1.5 miles and plan to go back to see more. I definitely recommend bringing bug spray as there were a lot of mosquitoes in the wet areas.

This is one of those spots I would gladly head to over and over again with kids of any age! Equally great for adults who love hiking with plenty of loop options and interesting waypoints (my favorite were the pond loop and observation tower).

I would agree with other reviews that while you need have a little bit of patience, if you have sunflower seeds the chickadees will be eating right out of your hand… we also spotted loads of turtles, and a faun as well as other local wildlife! I was hiking with kids aged 6, 8, and 14. We got about 2.2 miles in and spent about an hour and a half hiking. Bring bug spray and be tick-savvy.... we had to pull a couple despite being careful.

Everybody loved this hike! We’ll be back for sure!

This is a beautiful area with a nice brook that runs through the middle, but is unbearably buggy. Lots of lush foliage with multiple wooden walkways crossing the brook at various intervals, but we had to maintain such a fast pace to avoid being eaten alive, it was difficult to enjoy. I was wearing OFF! Deep Woods Sportsman bug spray with 30% deet and the bugs laughed in my face. Bugs were all over my dog and I, in our ears and eyes. Just awful. Would probably be better in early spring or late fall, will be back. Normally I would rank this hike at 5 star for the scenery. So we’ll revisit during a better time of year. Hopefully

Fun area to explore with lots of rampart caves and ledges. The highlighted loop goes around the Chasm, but it’s definitely worth checking it out during your trip. We spent about a half hour checking out the caves, then did a little hiking. The trails in the area are very well marked and maintained. My one warning would be to avoid coming on weekends since it gets very crowded.

Nice place to hike and exercise. Very scenic.

This is a beautiful wildlife sanctuary with a variety of trails. On our first visit, we took my frail elderly mother. We borrowed their all-terrain wheelchair and took my mother on the short accessible trail by the lily pond. For our second visit (without my mother), we did a longer hike along the millpond path, Charles River loop, and frog pond trail. The nature is varied with ponds, small waterfalls, the Charles River, woods, and a few meadows. We saw a turtle, frog, deer, a flock of wild turkeys, and numerous other birds. Trails are generally well-marked, and we only had a few points of confusion.

Pretty good quick off leash trail. All in the shade. Trail was well marked. Don't forget bug spray

Maudslay State Park is a beautiful place to wander. There are an abundance of trails, many of which loop around the park.

This place is beautiful and peaceful. Lots of bugs! Bring bug spray.

Poorly advertised as dog friendly. The access trail to this trail is not dog friendly and therefore should not be considered or advertised to be as such.

I was unable to do this trail because I didn’t understand the parking.... there is not a designated parking area, you just park in front of peoples houses. Not really a marked trail opening. With no other cars around, I felt weird just parking and walking down a random trail. I would like to find where people are parking to experience the trail.

Took this loop but explored off the trail in several places. Lovely light hike - saw very few people -3 runners, surprising for a beautiful Saturday. The Concord River is lovely- can swim at the bay about midway through the loop.

I love this place. So peaceful and the best hiking experience i have had.

Moderate woodland trails with beautiful views overlooking the chasm. Inside, there are a lot of great bouldering areas to climb over and through.

I think you have the wrong trail in the map. Millington trail is the red blazes. I know this, because I passed the green trail twice like the devil’s hopyard map says. I think it might be the green trail or blue. The trail listed which is green is the woodcutters trail and the blue it’s just blue. It’s easy to see when you look at the devil’s hopyard map they provide. Great trail I just wanted to bring attention to this and make it so others weren’t as confused as I was. It says that it is connected to the orange trail, but it goes out to the left of the map out of any crossing. Or maybe it’s labeled wrong as the upper loop of the orange trail where you go down a bit to the end of the second loop go back up and skip devil’s oven. Just fallow the red blazes after the waterfall.

Easy trail until you hike up to devils oven. Which has a big incline. Brought a dog and the dog could keep up.

Stunning and peaceful.

Second time going here. Absolutely my favorite. It's a work out climbing up the steep inclines. We
saw tons of red spotted purple butterflies and some turkey! my Wife almost stepped on a garden snake. lol

great place. always impressed by the chasm. Wildlife is super cool. kick over a rotted log and you may find a giant millipede

Beautiful!

This is my favorite type of hike. Rocky scramble, huge boulders and trees. Started counterclockwise on charleys loop(yellow), followed forest road trail (orange and blue) and chasm trail (blue). Chasm trail was the best with huge rocks to climb in under on and through. there's a trail but so many neat options on it! First trails were boring but the chasm more than made up for it! FYI - parking fee $5 for MA resident, $10 out of state.

This was one of the coolest places we have ever been to. Highly recommend it.

More of a dog friendly environment. Other than that nice walk does elevates nice view.

much easier than moderate. easy plus, maybe.

Beautiful during every season. Lovely trails and a fantastic boardwalk, so many great critters to see along the way!
