    Nicole Helcher reviewed Boston's Freedom Trail

    about 1 month ago

    An absolutely wonderful way to see Boston and learn a lot of history!

    This is a wonderful place for a day hike (or longer if you want... camping is available). Today was an absolutely beautiful day. Peaceful, birds chirping, river flowing, frogs singing, breeze blowing. I saw someone chilling in a hammock with a book (brilliant). It is $6 for a day pass to get into the park. Worth it if you ask me. :) The trails are very well marked and trail maps available at several locations.

    Nicole Helcher reviewed Jailhouse Trail

    3 months ago

    My husband and I went out today for some fresh air (March 11). The trails are still very muddy. We saw just one other person out on his mountain bike while we hiked on foot. It will be nicer when Spring arrives and dries out the mud. It was difficult to follow all the switchbacks on the map. We ended up doing a little over 2 miles. The entrance is in the fairgrounds. I'd rate this trail as easy, not moderate.

    This was one of the most beautiful trails I've ever done. This was one of the stops on our road trip from Michigan to Maine. I'm so glad we did it!

    This was a wonderful side trip away from the Vegas Strip. The temperature was perfect for a nice hike in late January. Easy parking and access to the trail. Definitely wear some good, non-slip hiking shoes. Part of the trail is very sandy and the other part you'll do some light rock scrambling. My shoes became slippery from the sand and while walking on the rocks I slipped and landed on my caboose which resulted in a very colorful bruise.

    The views were spectacular! My husband and I had already done quite a bit of hiking this day (including the Beehive Trail) so this was very physically demanding. He asked, "Do our fitbit steps still count if we dragged ourselves off the mountain?" Lol. We did the South Ridge Trail and after reaching the summit we turned around and came back out the way we went in.

    The views were spectacular! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is afraid of heights. You'll be climbing and walking on trails where you can look over the edge and think: "If I fell right here, I would not survive". With that said, there is no reason you should fall unless you're doing something dumb. ;)

    It was a nice, natureful hike. The falls were more of a dribble in August when we were there. We decided to get more adventurous and do a little rock scrambling where the falls would normally be and climb back behind them. Its just an ugly drain, in case you felt the need to be curious too! ;)

    This trail is wonderful because you can turn left and go see the Cherokee Falls and then come back up and go right to see the Hemlock Falls. Just keep in mind, all those stairs feel easy to walk down, but at some point you have to come back up!
