Lovely, easy walks among old trees, the North River and a scenic pond. Trails are well marked and nicely manicured.

This is a really great place to walk. Contrary to other reports, Norris is open all year. Very friendly people. Nice ponds, a stream, great for dogs. One of my favorite places to walk. If it's busy, you can park on the street or across the street at the Post Office without a problem.

My first trail - it was easy to follow, very pretty area, friendly people and loved the wild life. We saw snakes, a turtle, fish, chipmunks, and a herring. Made me look forward to future hikes :-)

Great trail, easy to follow. Loops by the North River, has a small barn/pier on it. Very friendly people. Usually there is plenty of parking, but if its a nice day, sometimes will have to use the street.

The trails are marked well and easy to follow. lots of friendly families and those with dogs had them on a leash and I didn't see any messes on the trails. I'll definitely be back!

Nice, short trail system with great views of the North River. You can get total distance of 2-4 miles running without covering too much of the same ground. Nice place to add a few softer miles on the legs if you are running in the downtown Norwell area.

Stepped out of my car and into a pile of dog poop, but it didn't end there. Despite many signs and FREE dog waste bags, the first 1/4 mile was a mine field, proving no matter how affluent the town, there are discourteous people everywhere. There's also a commonly ignored leash law as well, super nice to have your swamp soaked pup jump all over my children. It's a shame because it's a great walk for kids through many different ecosystems. My recommendation is to wear poop-proof boots and carry a big stick to ward off the muddy dogs.
