This 367 acre park has a storied industrial history and a present day attractiveness all its own. A three-quarter mile trail accesses a viewpoint with a ten mile view.

Fun trail and a good workout. Pay attention to the gps or you’ll end up on the red trail.

Great loop. Well maintained trail. Are some minor connecting trails but can’t get lost as they all connect back to main trail. Some great views.

I liked this trail a lot .was not my favorite but enjoyed it.i really like trails that are loops so I liked this trail.on YouTube I did a video of this trail.with my dad.loved the trail super nice and overall I liked this trail a lot!

Best trail I ever went! Me and my friend went with his dog and it was amazing!

Pretty well maintained trail with nice lookouts. Blazes could be cleaned up a bit. The local kids have painted the rocks, which is a shame. There is some highway noise from I-395 which does take away from it a bit. Terrain varies and changes quickly, so do won't get bored.

Stuck to the well-marked and well-traveled trails, mostly staying to the right at splits. Peaceful and secluded, despite some highway noise bleed.

Very very buggy! Good trails and relatively challenging. Clearly marked most of the time, I stayed on the blue path for most part, 2 miles out and back. I never found the overlook.

We started from the South Frontage Road entrance and followed the markers which were pretty good! Sometimes they were on the ground instead of the trees so you just need to pay attention.

The cliffs had beautiful views and you could see to Rhode Island!

The trails were poorly marked, which was initially frustrating. But it became clear that all trails lead to Rome, in a sense, and most of them will get you to the cliffs. I took the path near the boat launch, although if I had taken the trail from the opposite end, I think it would have lead to a bear of a hike. Fantastic views, but so much graffiti, which is a real shame. Still, it was a good hike and I would recommend checking it out.

This was a very nice place to spend 1-2 hours. Bring boots and be prepared as this is a moderate hike. Quiet, nice views, cool rocks to climb, and a decent amout of wildlife. Trails are very narrow but well maintained. Toads, millipede and some butterflies were around.

This is one of our go-to loops for a quiet afternoon. The trails are well maintained and easy to use. There are cliff faces for those feeling more adventurous.

Nice, easy trail. Well maintained blue-blazed trail. I would like to head back in the fall for foliage views from the cliff.

We began the hike from Old Furnace State Park Parking area near Route 6. Using a map downloaded from DEEP, we began our hike. As other's have noted, there are a number of unmarked trails so you have to pay real close attention to the blazes . The view from the cliff is pretty this time of year (April). The hike itself is an easy one, family and dog friendly. Great starter hike for the hiking season.

Started the hike by going straight to the cliff, came back down and completed the loop. Hiked to the cliff again and came back down and hiked around the pond and down through Ross Pond Marsh and back.Some light snowflakes falling on this chilly late March Sunday. Trees here are developing buds for spring. Total distance is roughly 4.5 miles for everything. I chose not to go down the far side of the cliff due to unclear trail markings. All other trails marked well. One of my all time favorites!

Great trail! It wasn’t marked well past the cliff, but very nice otherwise.

It is very easy to get lost in here. The map on AllTrails is NOT accurate at all. There are blue and yellow blazed trails that are crisscrossing numerous smaller trails. We had a fun adventure but be advised this is not an easy trail system.
