It's a nice trail but today it was both muddy and icy with slips rewarded in the mud. Also, done dogs had gone by and left gifts. l

Very crowded, lots of disc golfers but that's expected on a Saturday. Pretty quiet on the side trails, had a nice hike

Great trail through the woods and above the river. The old rail bridges are impressive. This is a great trail. Peaceful.

HikingGreat!

Super pretty quiet and wonderful walk… Lots of options… Fantastic overlook from which you could see Boston skyline. Even with snow on the trail it was lovely to walk! And don’t miss the mill pond and dam!

Trail was packed snow and was pretty firm early. Traction devices helped. Towards end it was softening up in the afternoon sun and was like hiking in sand.

Hiking

We’ve done this trail every season of the year and it never disappoints. This particular hike was a bit wet but you’ll be fine with waterproof boots. Trails are easy, this time of year are slick but not overly slippery. It’s an easy couple miles and the waterfall was almost completely frozen which was picturesque.
