Great little trail full of ups and downs and a beautiful view! A messy place after rain though.

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

Not my favorite trail. Actually it’s my least favorite. Very overgrown on many paths. Was nice to get my pup outside but I honestly found this place creepy.

Classic New England landscape.

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.

Very pretty, easy two miles. The waterfall is a small one. From the description you might think it’s going to be a cascade fall, but it’s small and gentle and lovely. It can get very muddy in places, so wear appropriate footwear or plan to go after a spell of dry weather.

Pretty wet hiking after all the rain we've had lately. Lots of low, wet spots, but an easy walk with nice scenery. Watch out for the prickly vines, though!

This trail is really relaxing.in the fall it is really nice for this trail.but I enjoyed this trail very much. I think if you do this trail in the winter it is very cold and not to relaxing.but overall great trail!

Great trail. Well maintained and marked. I would have given it a five if I’d run into less people along the trail.

Lots of ups and downs . A bit challenging with leaves covering rocks and stumps. Have your hiking boots on and take it slow in the Fall.

Really nice well marked hike. Easy, but long enough to get a reasonable amount of exercise. I’d like to go back when the rhododendrons are in bloom!

Really great moderate trail. Took us just under two hours with a quick stop at the waterfall for some lunch. Simple but great hike

Great trail. Well kept. Great parking lot. Trail maps available. Well maintained scenic trail with two bridges.

Perfect fall walk in the woods,

from September to February, wearing orange is required. this is a hunting area.

Nice little hike, trails were well marked and the scenery was beautiful and serene.

Nice trail. Rocky. Dogs are allowed with leash. Great view of Jamestown bridge. The beach section (0.25 mile section) was full of shells which was hard on the pups paws. Last mile of trail is narrow, but overall nice trail.

This was a great little hike for kids and family. Took our 3 kids age 10, 7 and 3 and they loved it. Very quiet but lots to see, waterfall, cemetery, little bridges, lake. Parking was good and easy to find

great views of the lake and the trail is well maintained!

Great walk for kids!

Very pretty, perfect for an easy medium/long walk on a nice day. Lots of turtles and birds to see! The paths closer to the visitor center (around the ponds and mill brook) are wide and clear. The paths that head further away (past the fields) are less maintained and buggy in the heat. I imagine this place is beautiful in the fall!

Early morning walk, lots of turtles sunning themselves, saw a large great blue heron, deer, garden snake, frogs ect., very fun!

Fail trail for biking
From Franklin 3.5 miles in path was only good for hiking where we were Met with a dump site awful. Turned around

Nice afternoon hike. First-time visit. Very rocky and many tree roots/tree’s down throughout the trail. A few steep stairways. OK for large breed dogs (I brought my Golden retriever).

Nice 2.5 mile hike. A little challenging, but our 3 and 4.5 year olds were able to complete it. Bring bug spray. Will come back in the fall to see the foliage!

Great place! Walked the path recommended at the entrance for young children, approximately 1.5 miles. My three kids loved it (ages 6,4,4). Lots of turtles, ducks, and some frogs. Waterfalls, too! Would love to go back and do other trails! We packed a snack and enjoyed the scenery.

Well maintained. Decent amount of traffic. Great views along the coast.

I would definitely recommend going when it’s cooler. I’ll be back to do more of the trails in The colder months. There were just way to many bugs to enjoy it. The trails were good. I would rate it moderate more than easy.

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.

Great hike with the kids!! From the wild blueberry bushes to the fern gully’s and a possible deer sighting. Kids enjoyed very much. Bugs were a little unpleasant but we got through it.
