Nice loop surrounding the water.

Went over to Oak Hill then tried the next hill over (No Name Hill) but was thwarted with swampy conditions. Crossed back over road and into Hale camp area then iPhone ran out of power. Getting tired of these loops, need to move to the Adirondacks or Franconia or something.

Trail is extremely well marked and maintained! We had a wonderful walk with our dog and 7 year old daughter.

Nice loop on a great day. The little pond up on the north side is really nice and extends your hike. Soon I'd think the little bombino's will be at camp so it might be tricky running thru the beach areas unless your out early. Enjoy!

Great loop! You get the best of both Noanet Pond and Storrow Pond. A few dudes fishing up at Storrow this morning, said they had some pretty good action but no keepers. I missed Cat Rock on the way up, it's always fun to go through that area. Enjoy!

Went for a 4 mike hike around the trails of Cat Rock on Hale Reservation. Only recorded the beginning 1.5 miles around the area for Cat Rock. Then I detoured straight for Noanet Pond and enjoyed the picnic bench by the water. I took the paved path down and back around the reservation. It was snowy and quiet on this off-season day. Multiple options for windy paths, or paved paths. Beautiful lake and interesting features to look at.

A little known section of Hale reservation south of Powisset Street. Initial trail boarders the west side of the Dover Transfer Station. This is a popular spot for a few local mountain bike enthusiasts. Good stuff for trail runners. Lots of roots, rocks, and ledges. The first ledge you encounter, kind of a side path to get there actually, is magnificent. This is a real treat, enjoy!

A nice little trek turned into a 5+ mile loop through Hale Reservation. I've never been to Cat Rock so thought I'd check that out. Pretty cool ledge in the heart of the Reservation. Plenty of alternative ways to do this hike/trail run. Enjoy!
