Easy bike trail

Great trails. very easy Trails if you want to take an easy ride. It's nice to be around the water even though you're not allowed to go in it. And there are plenty of trails that go everywhere.

Very buggy. Shore line of the lake is beautiful. Tons of ticks!!!!

Trail is flat, wide, and well marked. Fun hike to do with kids or inexperienced hikers.

great trail for a weekday walk with the kids and dog!

Just great for hiking, biking, jogging! Beautiful at any time of the year, especially at foliage.

Great trail! mostly flat, offers a few great views of the lake just a small walk off the trail. Great for the dogs and any level of hiker. Trails are decently marked, but I refered to the app a few times to make sure I was on the right path. From the parking lot walk to the right, go left at the road, walk 20 feet, turn left at the trail gate, everything is easy to see. Fun trail, took 3 hours taking our sweet time.

Easy walk. Lots of dog owners with pets off leash. Nice field area with birdhouses and apiary. We started off trail far east of the Audubon off Spofford road. Trail started nicely off Manchester Water Works however we needed to bush wack about 150 yards though blow downs before connecting with the maintained trails.

Amazing place for hiking

my favorite new England trail

My go to trail for a walk. It follows the side of the reservoir. Flat, heavily travelled by bikes. Good path for dogs on a leash. Lots of ticks. Please be aware and check your dog after. Nice lily pond and pretty foliage.

Nice trail, poorly marked. Also someone keeps bagging up their dogs poop and leaving it on the trail. How stupid are you?! Now you are just throwing plastic bags in the woods? Dumb people ruin everything...

The trails aren't really trails, they are gravel roads. Wide and flat enough to drive a car down. There are many small trails diverging off but none of them are marked. While on the gravel roads, there is nothing really to see. No ponds, no wildlife. The trails start at the Audubon center and go through some fields. BUT there are signs you can't bring dogs through the fields because of the birds. So if you are bringing your dog, you'll need to walk up the road past the parking area and two houses to get to some wooded trails.

While this is a beautiful hike, the trails were kind of confusing, and the maps did not help much at all. I'm not saying you'll get lost, as the trails are very well maintained and have lots of traffic... but be prepared to realize you have to turn around after going in the wrong direction for 20 mins!

I love coming here with my toddler because the paths wide enough for the stroller. It is a gorgeous place to walk year-round. Make sure bring some snowshoes during in the winter. The snow can get quite deep on the path.

Massages if to Chester Turnpike - going farther each trip. Some section surfaces a rocky for my hybrid bike tires. So spending much time with my eyes down on the road.

Peaceful. Easy riding for mountain bike. Double track.

I walk this path all the time after work. It's quiet and easy to do. It's a good way to get in a little workout during the week. The view is beautiful also!

Nice flat trail, well maintained, great fall foliage. Maps available were deceiving. Map signs on trail were great but tree markings were sporadic. All in all a nice fall walk.

A friend and I used a part of this trail yesterday, largely looking for photo opportunities. I'm new to this site, and I don't know how I could contribute to making the map better. But suffice it to say, first the parking area here is at an Audubon Society location. There are many, many more trails than the main one shown. And we had to ask for advice to see the possible connection to what we were SEEING as opposed to what was on the map. That said, it sufficed, and we probably would have managed, with a little sense of direction (which I have) to figure out how to proceed. The place is beautiful. The Google map directions for GETTING here were a bit messed up. It might be wise to check a real map before relying on Siri (Google maps) entirely.

Dogs in leashes, friendly people, light traffic, wide trails and beautiful views. Loved watching the sailboat races too. Definitely our top choice
