Started at the Powissett entrance and walked on a few of the marked and unmarked trails. Definitely coming back - trails well maintained, dog friendly, very nice area. Parking is a little tight in that lot.

I would give this trail more stars if it was marked. Now that I know the ways to go, I will definitely do it again though.

Nice trail run for beginner trail runners

Love this trail once you’re off he boardwalk. The Hope trail is my favorite and felt like I kept finding new spots and things to see. Easy trail and enjoyed it all.

Watch your ankles! Fun trail but not for jogging.

This is one of the many very nice parks in New Bedford. The walk is around the perimeter of the park, pond, zoo, ball fields, and woods. Very busy traffic on the roads adjacent to the park. Accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.

Perfect amount of information. Kids ran from sign to sign screaming, "another clue!" I felt like I learned about & could recognize more of the wildlife. Quiet - could clearly hear bird calls.

Comfortable

loved it ..definetly a nice place for a hike & maybe fishing & picnic

I grew up in the area and Profile Rock was always a highlight for a weekend walk. Since childhood the trails still exist however there is a lot more trash, broken glass and spray paint on the grounds. The rock profile that takes shape of a Native Americans face has always been my favorite part of this place and if you climb to the top you can a pretty nice view!

I did this trail twice today. Once with my toddler then later with my whole family. We enjoyed it both times. Easy to follow with forks in the road for different choices. The kids loves the bridges and the water. We saw plenty of birds and ducks in the am but only ducks in pm. Great trail for the whole family especially with Kids.

Walked the short yellow trail and followed the loop around. My boyfriend and I spotted three bufflehead sea ducks, one male and two females, on the water. On the way back to the parking lot an unidentifiable owl flew overhead. Aside from the overgrown bramble this place is a great spot to view a variety of birds.

Love this place. Camped here for years and always hiked the trails. Now live closeby to hike every weekend. Way more trails that are not listed here. Enjoy!

It wasn’t a bad hike, I went out during a rainy day in February. I did have to pick up a little bit of trash as I hiked along but all in all it was a nice quiet hike

Trail around Lake Rico’s edge is amazing, not listed as a trail but just follow the water line, there’s a narrow trail alongside it. Best trail in the park

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.

nice, easy paced trail.

nice easy open trails. bring orange hat for green trail during hunting season.

Great ponds, so pretty and interesting terrain. Doggie heaven. Blue trail is my fav, adding yellow trail for a hike to
The peak.
Take a map, it's easy to get confused with all the trails. Fairly well traveled so no worries

A rocky dirt bike road that was not particularly scenic. The ledge view over the water was nice.

Great property. Went from Caryl Park all the way down to what I call Perkins Cove (first mill pond, site of colonial era wood mill). This is an awesome pond that was full to grade in a driving rain this day (still soothed my soul!). Such a nice spot, one of my favorites in all of Dover (have a seat, relax)! A beautiful erratic on the main trail near Caryl, check it out. Enjoy!

Picturesque little spot along the Kickemiut river. Easy.

Wonderful hike. Long enough to get a great workout with the hills. I think I would caution on the side of calling it moderate just in case someone goes thinking it's flat.

A lot of people,
Not that there’s anything wrong with that...,,,

Great hike. Easy paths. Dense woods. Good for beginners. Some people on bikes. Many people with well-heeled dogs on leashes.

had a lovely hike with the fam, saw a lot of friendly pups and no poop so thanks dog-owners!!! this a fave quick local jaunt for me

Nice trail for fall. Beautiful view at the top. Many trails intersecting, so follow the map.

Definitely not 4.6 miles.
2.5 at the most as marked.

I ran the loop twice and added the Amy Hart loop and came out at exactly 4 miles.

There’s a little downhill as you enter the trail. Other than that it is pretty flat. Very manicured trail. You might want to walk it the first time! There’s tons of signs with information about the land and the flora. Including maps and pictures.

If you are a trail runner; this is a great place for flat speed workouts.
