Really boring hike except for Tippling Rock where there was a nice view. Really really buggy even with Deep Woods Off. We hiked all the way to Fords Folly and on the way the trail was almost completely overgrown in several places which was really unpleasant. Tick-land. Not sure what fords folly was in the past but now it’s just a high cement corridor with a fence and woods on either side with a surprise inside—a bees nest! My boyfriend got stung by 3 bees. We could not want to get off a trail faster and never do return. I assume most of these good reviews are locals grateful to have a place to walk a dog. Not worth the trip

The parking lot is a little tricky to find. a little gravel road off the main road. great trail, many options, and beautiful view up on the top. Not busy at all when I went but being bug spray. I am looking forward to try the other trail options.

Finding the parking lot was a little tricky. Parts of this trail are very overgrown so definitely triple check for ticks and bring bug spray unlike me who always forgets it. If you do the whole loop it's more like 5 miles but otherwise very enjoyable. There are also wild blueberries everywhere!

This was my first trail using this app. I had a little trouble finding it initially (and the parking area) but once I did, my dog and I had a great time!! This area had a lot of different trail options, so we will definitely go back. Also, we didn’t see a lot of other people, so it was really peaceful. Most of the trail was really well shaded. I did get a little lost, but the trails were well marked, I just wasn’t paying attention. I was going through a lot of things in my head. A few hard climbs, but mostly pretty flat.

Peaceful walk in the woods to a beautiful view. A little buggy in the shade. Our first time here- trails a little difficult to follow but will definitely be back.

Date: Early July Walk Time - To Summit: 30 minutes - Back Down: 30 minutes - Total: About 1 hour Pros - Great View - Not too steep, gradually rises as you walk - Lots of different plants (Oak and Pine Trees, Tall Grass, Ferns, Even Blueberry Bushes) Cons - Buggy (Almost inevitable in any woodsy trail) - Not very well-marked, make sure you keep looking at the AllTrails map to stay on the right path - Some parts have tall grass in the way, it can become a tick hotspot Final Thoughts - Great trail, great view, but could definitely have more signs telling you which trails are which. I recommend this trail.

New favorite spot! Am happy I was wearing a headband however as I wound up using it to cover my ears to keep the bugs out :/ otherwise perfect mix of easy and moderate with a wee view of Boston (like 3 buildings haha) at tipping rock.

1 hour trail. Easy on the knees with 1 good viewpoint. Parking was a bit of a hassle on the Saturday evening we went, with all the families camping at this place. Lots of kids and families, near the cabins, in the initial section of the trail near Monsun. Much more peaceful and serene after that.

Ups and downs. Early on season, but plenty more to see.

Beautiful spring day for a hike. Frogs were very active in the small ponds along the trails. The weather was great, a warm breeze, slight overcast and little mud made for an easy enjoyable trek through the forest.

New to the area and just discovered this trail. It’s a very easy trail to navigate with plenty of markers. The view East from Tippling Rock is a nice sight to see. Looking forward to exploring more of Nobscot and checking out Ford Folly

A nice trail and well marked which is greatly appreciated.

This trail turned out to be great!! At first it’s a little weird and you feel like you’re walking in people’s backyards, but as you get further along it’s all forest. It’s almost all uphill, but the view at the top is worth it. Great place to have a picnic with a good view! Will definitely be doing this again.

A wonderful hike . Great views from Tippling Rock . Can see Boston . Parked on Rt 20 in Sudbury. About 20 mins to Rock .Warning - did discover a tick on my hand . Warm weather is awakening them

Nice property but very sad to see someone split the Tippling Rock. Apparently this was done some time ago, local farmers were supposedly worried about their cows getting crushed by the "tippy erratic". They cleaved it twice, very sad. Perhaps the scout brass thought it was dangerous for the summer scouts? Either way, a very sad situation.

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