Parked in main lot and headed over to the Ames Mansion. Continued north to Leach Pond lodge (Shutter Island movie scene filmed here, ugly scene as I recall). Nice cold 1Jan18 day! Did the Pond Walk next over to Puds then up to the Tisdale estate (cool history, read the sign). Continued north again up to the quarry (granite used for Canton viaduct) then south back to the parking lot. This is a wonderful property. Happy New Year!

Lovely place. Pretty scenery. Very flat. I would only rate it moderate because it allows you to do distance, the trails themselves are very flat.

It was beautiful but I would rate it under 'easy'. Many of the trails are carriage roads even the smaller trails as easy with not very challenging inclines. There is a $5 parking charge - interesting estate, disc golf, playgrounds and lovely ponds.

beautiful lake

This is a great place to take dogs! We have two and one is getting older so she can't do the big up hill hikes anymore. This is perfect for both dogs because it is relatively flat but still fun to explore! Plus they can go swimming on a hot day. If you are looking for a steeper hike though I wouldn't recommend going here. There are definitely trails here that are more difficult but still in general it is relatively flat.

We go here several times a year. there are multiple trails you can take along with the 9 mile loop. the pond loop is a nice easy 3.5 mile loop

Great park, well maintained and if you run up mountain road, you can get some good hill work in too.

well maintained, well marked. beautiful any time of year. main trail is heavily trafficked but side trails are vast and offer a more private hike.

This is a beautiful place to walk and enjoy nature. The property is very well maintained and is a real gem!

Very nice mix of Trail's by lake and through woods I really like the lack of city noise

Amazing place to walk/hike. Lots of great trails and views.

Wonderful paths with beautiful views!

Beautiful trail with plenty of space, and just enough hills. The water is beautiful, as are the features. Between the huge fields and the paths through trees, the rock cabin with a lit fire, the mansion, the farmhouse, and the bridges I don't know what was my favorite part. I will definitely return here! $6 out of state parking fee. Must vacate by 6pm sharp per park rules, at least in April. Highly recommend. Bathrooms, trash cans, lots of dogs!

I love this place, plenty of trails, disc golf and old buildings and quarries.

I've done cross country skiing, sledding with my kiddo behind the mansion, mansion tours, picnics, and hikes as long or short as you want. Never fails to disappoint!

Grew up in Mansfield so it was a place we went as a kid. Love it!

Great park! Love the view of the main flat trail surrounding the water. Side trails are a bit more rocky and offer beautiful fern groves and wildlife.
