Pleasantly surprised by this trail. Don’t be put off by the beginning of the trail head, just walk for a few minutes and you’ll eventually start seeing some beautiful stuff! Stunning trees, boulders, wood bridges. Great to see the foliage right now. Some inclines for a decent workout. Trails are very well marked and they are plentiful. Looking forward to going back. Oh, end of the loop is on a gravel road, but look at the map and there is a way to bypass that with the Deer Trail.

I live by this trail. it's a very nice stroll in the woods. great place to walk the dog, or take the kids. Can get pretty buggy in the spring

Nice up and down circuitous trail in the woods that’s well marked. The gnats are horrendous and deet resistant as on most hikes this time of year in New England. Like a happy motorcyclist a few were likely swallowed.

The trails were well marked and plenty of options for hike length. It was quiet and very little traffic. A few mountain bikers, and couple of joggers were all I came across. The bugs, however, were plentiful and they did not appreciate my visit. All in all, it’s a beautiful property and enjoyable hike.

bugs are absolutely atrocious. spray may help you but your poor dogs will suffer immensely. tried mtn biking as well and broke my f****** balls on trail, nothing but hills sharp corners rocks and roots. good luck. best used in dead of winter with snowshoes.

so this was an interesting trail, lots of cool stuff to see! you go from starting out walking through a narrow trail with some tall foliage and wildflowers and plenty of sunlight then you make your way into a shady forest that goes from dark areas with thick cover to areas where the trees are so sparse you can see deep into the forest. I went at dusk so the trail felt very ominous, you can hear lots of critters rustling around. there are lots of enchanting bogs to see and I bypassed part of the loop and took overlook pass and it lead to a very pretty view of the sunset over some trees! In doing this however I skipped part of the trail that I'm sure has a very pretty view of the wetlands. and to my surprise if wasn't to buggy, I didn't even need spray! I passed by some people doing fat tire mountain biking so I guess it's a popular trail for this as well :) the dog loved it!!

Nice trails but VERY buggy. Make sure to bring the bug spray. A lot of trails so you very rarely run into people. Plus it's great to explore new trails. There are a lot of areas in which they are tearing down the trees which looks sad.. Also the trails are very narrow so it is difficult if you run into a mountain bike. Overall a good hike minus the bugs.

You can hear the Londonderry gun range the whole time which is why I only gave it a three. Enjoyed my trail run and only ran into a few bikers. Easy enough to just go out and get lost and then find your way back. Definitely some mud at the front when I went but in the forest itself, it wasn't muddy. The bugs were only bad when I stopped running.

great trail for MTB

Lightly trafficked trail system with pretty views of the Musquash Marsh along the Heron Trail portion. Not a lot of trail markers, but trail intersections are well marked with a map, GPS coordinates, and nearest trail head. Only drawback is that there seems to be a gun range nearby, so it wasn't as quiet as I'd hoped.

Very well marked trail system. The maps and markers really keep you from getting lost and help you plan your route. Nothing mind blowing to see but I got some miles in over variable terrain and was never bored. There seems to be a gun range nearby so if you don’t like the sounds of gunfire find another hike.
