Was a good trail but definitely wish I had snow shoes today. when the snow is 6+ inches like it was today they definitely would have helped.

This is a nice walk. Can get very buggy and muddy sometimes. Overall great walk in the woods.

Fairly overgrown in spots with swarms of gnats. Will revisit during cooler temps

Love the woods on the midsection of this trail: tall, stately pines with very little under story. Dog friendly - leashes required at stream-crossings.

Really like this trail area in Ghiloni Park in Marlboro. There are a few more loops you can do here but they dont exist yet on All Trails. Very lightly trafficked always take my dog but keep on leash at all times. Usually pretty quiet area have seen more than a few owls here. This out and back trail is especially nice if you are looking to do a quick walk that isnt too long.

On the day we took this trail there was still too much ice to make it enjoyable. Can’t wait to explore here when the thaw comes. Great birds.

I did this in the winter when the whole thing was snowy. It was easy enough and pretty in the snow, and it wasn’t hard to keep to the trail. But there really wasn’t much to see but houses so that was kind of a bummer :-(

Easy hike with well marked trails. I shared the trail only with a flock of wild turkeys. There were many fresh deer tracks and the old stone border walls Massachusetts is known for. The summit doesn’t offer much in views, but at the top sits an amazingly big, old Maple tree.

Very nice hike. The trails are wide and very well maintained, they traverse though nice wetlands, old growth pines and open pitch pine forest. The trails don’t have signs with names, so It can be a little tricky to navigate the area. Also, the Plymton trail has one section where water has overflowed onto the trail, it is not deep but it can soak a good pair of shoes.

Nice short easy hike in the woods.

This hike is one of those urban gems - the chance to feel like you're in deep woods while you're in the center of an urbanized area. Added bonus is the loop to the summit of Mt. Ward, really just a large hill, which gives you some elevation gain for extra exercise, and has a pleasant bench under a curious-looking old maple tree at its summit. This version of the trail starts and ends from a nice little parking area with a trailhead map station. You'll find the trailhead parking on the driveway just to the left of the Alltop Mobile gas station on Rt. 20 (Boston Post Road) across from The Home Depot and Dunkin Donuts.
