I've never been up on the north side of this property so set out in that direction. Went as far as I could, on the horse trails and via the power lines. At one point I could see the Bubbling Brook Ice Cream place in the distance! Came around and into property behind Westwood Gun Club. This area has older, unmaintained trails. A nice trek nonetheless, JUST DO IT!

Love this area. Great for walking the dog & just hiking all the trails. There are so many little trails & a pond of you cross Lakeview road. I've been hiking here for years, often alone (4'11" female) & have never felt in any danger (for the reviewer TM that said women have been assaulted there) I've even locked my keys in my car here & some nice mountain bikers spent about an hour helping me get them out. One of my favorite spots.

I have trail run and hiked here for the past 3 years. I have found many of the people to be neighborly and courteous. There are quite a few dogs off leash but within voice range of owners and well trained and the there are others who should not be off leash. The trails are great and marked well. And I always look forward to a day in the woods there. Many families on foot, also men and women on bikes. I am heading there again today to get my 6 miles in! I highly recommend it as well as donating to keep the trails maintained !

After reading the reviews for this hike and attempting the hike as described by Alltrails, i think its important to note, The Diamond Hill trails are not those trails mapped out here. The Diamond Hill hike is in Diamond Hill Town Park. If you follow the directions alltrails provides here you are actually across the street from Diamond Hill. In a network of unorganized trails.. The town however has provided a pretty good map online for the park and hill (across the street). There are a few networks of marked trails here. Once you get the hang of them this is a pretty fun hike although short. Some of the old tow line gear can still be seen at the top of the hill, that i think is 343 ft, not the 630ft as described here. Happy Trails!

Short 3 mile walk featuring some of Borderlands best features. Gorgeous!

Really beautiful trail. It's really interesting to see the cranberry bog. This is a working farm. I'll have to return in the fall to see the berries when they are ripe.

Well maintained and very scenic. Lots of birds to look for and hear. Great for hiking with kids.

Great hike and really fun in Spring. If you do the entire round trip, it's 3,160 feet of elevation. Not a moderate hike. How Wolcott gets rated hard, when it's no where's near as long or difficult is beyond me.

This was a pleasant way to get outside today. The blue trail was well marked and well maintained... lots of trees down from recent storms, but none obstructing the path. As others have noted, people do not keep their dogs on leash here, despite instructions to do so. About 50 robins feeding on the field at the entrance. Looking forward to seeing more birds on future visits, and to enjoying it in the fall.

fantastic trail with beautiful views

beautiful views. Rocky.
difficult in winter.

Nice hike, kinda crowded.

This was a test trek. I drew the map on AT then downloaded it to my phone then went out and used it. It all worked like a charm. I like testing these things out before I use them on more ambitious hikes up on the White Mtns or elsewhere. A great app for sure!

Really great hike. Packed snow, trail broken in. Some icy spots, but did great with poles and crampons. Good training for New Hampshire!

Great hike. Don't let the fact that it's in eastern Mass fool you. The round trip hike is all up and down and is more strenuous than you think.

Decent hike, was looking to do some photography but nothing too astounding

Great trail for kids. We do this at least once a year. It’s short, but offers a lot in that short walk. Cranberry bogs, large turtles and fish and New England tree varieties.

This was a test trek but, for some reason, the maps were not able to download at the trailhead. I did have about half of the map so went with that. My son was to pick me up on the other side of the approx. 3 mile journey. I never made it. I know the woods so it wasn't a big deal, I just jumped on the train tracks and exited over in the Donnelly Estates. Not sure why the maps wouldn't download on location so now I'm sure to do that at home or with WIFI.

Great trails for biking and hiking , very friendly people there definitely coming back for more

Not a fan of all the “extras” they have set up all the time, ie halloween/Christmas decorations.

Easily marked and lots of paths

too many off leash dogs. dogs are supposed to be on leash. the description here says dogs are welcome on trails but does not say they need to be on leash.

Parked in main lot and headed over to the Ames Mansion. Continued north to Leach Pond lodge (Shutter Island movie scene filmed here, ugly scene as I recall). Nice cold 1Jan18 day! Did the Pond Walk next over to Puds then up to the Tisdale estate (cool history, read the sign). Continued north again up to the quarry (granite used for Canton viaduct) then south back to the parking lot. This is a wonderful property. Happy New Year!

Loved this hike! Lots of well marked trails with scenic views. The peak view was pretty awesome, especially for such a low altitude, and included the Boston Skyline. There was even a decorated Christmas tree at the top. Sweet surprise.

It’s important to note that we didn’t do the park trail loop, but rather made our way up to the top of Diamond Hill via the trail on the other side of Diamond Hill Road. It was about 1.5 miles to get from the parking lot to the top and back. There was about 4 inches of new snow on the ground. It was beautiful and a lot of fun. We started out by going straight up the hill via the old ski run and then made our way to the hilltop using the trails. We had our kids with us, one of whom is 6 yrs old, and they all did just fine. We’ll return in the spring to check it out sans snow, too! Definitely our favorite hike in Rhode Island, so far.

Hiked this trail in the wintertime following a snowfall and was not disappointed. Tough to believe you can find a serene landscape like this tucked inside the I-95 corridor! Great views and well-marked trails, with a few rocky/scrambling areas and several challenging inclines and descents. Good footwear is a must. Will hike the longer variation next!

Stunning

Parked at the High Rock parking area and then headed east on the High Rock Road trail. Continued on Messenger then cut into the single track trail and headed south. Wow, impressive property for sure, nice collection of erratics. Found my way over to the Megley Trail then worked my way north back to the AT&T towers and parking lot. I'm coming back!
