This is a great trail for people who want to get used to mtb. Technical in some places and easy in others.

Well marked trail that’s easy to navigate. Peaceful forest setting with stone walls, ferns and wild flowers. Tons of bugs so bring spray.

This is a short and easy trail. It's like a quick sample of Callahan SP and a nice trail to stretch your legs on if you're pressed for time. There are also plenty of old stone walls traversing the woods to keep you interested.

I hiked this trail on a wet spring day when the ferns and leaves were emerging on the trail. The majority of the path was enjoyable to follow and walk. I followed this trail clockwise from the parking lot and it was fairly easy with only a few muddy spots. The dogs loved Eagle Pond and the water along the trail. However, if you follow the path from the Pipeline Trail towards Baiting Brook in the latter part of the hike, the trail badly needs maintenance and has several tree arbors across the trail. I would recommend taking the Pipeline Trail back to your car.

Very comfortable trail. Opens up into two big fields along the way, one with horses and the other with lush vegetation. We passed very few people along the way, so it was quiet and peaceful. We did have to cross 2 small roads, which isn't ideal, but it's still a solid trail, good exercise, great smells, and a nice easy weekend hike. I would definitely recommend it.

Even though it was muddy, it was easy to get around. It wasn’t too busy and it was a great hike.

Can be wicked muddy around the north and west edges of the Beebe Pond.

A very short and easy hike. Perfect to do with my mom as she’s older now. Has a great view of the sunset from the picnic table at beebe meadows and is great for a quick, leisurely walk.

Great spot . No real parking on the trail side . There is a lot about 100 yds across the street. The trail winds around Gibbs Mountain and leads to Bebe Pond . Well marked trails. Trail was a little icy but I wore treads . Will come back in the Spring

The beginning of this loop is a dog-poop museum but once you get deeper in the woods, you see less of that. Well-marked trails with lots to see; forest, meadows, ponds, etc. No real views.

Coming from Edmands parking steep rocky terrain and by the pond the meadow with a view

Quite pleasant. Strange having the private property up near Gibbs. Watch out for the "Attack Dogs". Another hiker told me Raytheon owns the property. Will be back to do the trail down to the reservoir. Just do it!

I give this 4 stars not for the moderate hiking, it’s easy, but it seems great for trail running and some mountain biking. There were some nice gradual inclines and downhills. No gravel, nice firm ground, moderate roots and rocks. We ended up speed hiking, worked up a sweat but didn’t get tired. To classify this as a moderate hike I would give it a 2.

Good loop on the north side of Callahan. Some much needed trail maintenance has been done on Red Tail which made it much more enjoyable on the way to Gibbs Mountain. The trails alternate between shady woods and open meadows. There are a couple sections that can be confusing so I would recommend using your tracker to avoid wandering in circles. Despite the poor signage on the north side, I really did enjoy this hike and would do it again.

One of the longest loops hikes you can do on the south side of Callahan. The trails are well marked and maintained but some of them get very close to roads and neighborhoods, which kinda ruined the nature experience for me at times. You can easily avoid these by taking little short cuts.

Really great place to bring your dog. Our lab always leaves here exhausted after all the swimming and running. Everyone we ran into was extremely friendly and people seemed to be picking up after their canine friends. They include fee trail maps as well as poop bags. Trails are easy to follow, well maintained, we love it here.

Beautiful nature trails teeming with wildlife. You get a sense of truly being in nature out here in the Sudbury Valley conservation land. Lived in the area my whole life and have just begun exploring the trails here. This is a place for people who truly appreciate nature and wildlife. I passed many mountain bikers on my journey as well as dog walkers. A lot of people enjoy horseback riding on these trails (fresh manure along the trails), but most people are here simply to observe the wildlife that calls the area home. Bring a camera/binoculars, bug spray, and a snack to enjoy by the pond.

Easy Saturday morning run through Callahan! The trails are well marked and clear. My dog loves this park as there are plenty of other dogs for her to play with as we run along the trail. Best to have the map downloaded and refer to it to make sure you are following the correct trail. Or if you are a gambler, just take whatever turn suits your fancy! They all intersect at different points through the park. Enjoy!
