Well-marked trail. Not much to look at but an easy walk in the woods.

A good well maintained loop for a short hike. Not the best if you’re looking for views, but still worth doing. If you want a longer hike with more to see, check out Tippling Rock as well. It adds a few miles but it’s worth it.

Definitely one of the better loops at Nobscot, the trails are well maintained and well marked. The loop includes the two best features in the reservation; Tippling Rock and Nobscot Hill. Tippling Rock is an open ledge with views all the way to Boston, Nobscot Hill has no views but adds a bit more challenge to the loop. Definitely bring bug spray if you are going in the near future.

Been hiking here 30 years now and pretty much know the forest. I would suggest a map though. There are lots of lefts of rights so you really have to pay attention. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn’t for that. Great vistas like Tippling Rock and fire tower cliff offer views of Boston. There’s a bit of history in those woods also including a Small Pox Cemetery.
Depending on the trails you choose some have challenging hills, but others offer a simple stroll with small cabins and flowing streams throughout the woods. Dogs must be leashed if you bring your furry friend. Enjoy !!!
