Great way to connect the two trail systems with some nice peaks to run up and down. Abandoned buildings, bunkers, old army training obstacle course, view of firefighter academy, and even an abandoned neighborhood. Could spend all day exploring.

to get to Gardner hill you have to walk about a mile on the road. Gardner hill is nice but to me not worth it, it's buggy and there's not enough there to make walking along the road worth it to me. assabet is nice and enough on it's own

Some parts of the trail were closed and the flies were omnipresent... but a cool hike nonetheless, once modified. Take some time to explore the old military bunkers!

Gardner hill side was good hiking, the route was a little strange looping about. The Assabet conservation side was mostly along paved closed roads not my idea of hiking.

There are some trails in this area but Taylor Way is not one. it's mostly old asphalt. I would stick to Pemigewassett, Towhee trail. Taylor west closed off and many other areas too. (Some) hunters don't want you to hike here. pros: plenty birds and chipmunks. Some nice ponds. I didn't do Gardner Hill today.

Abandoned buildings, bunkers, old army training obstacle course, view of firefighter academy, and even an abandoned neighborhood. Could spend all day exploring. The trail going off of heritage road isn't very good I would just skip it and explore other stuff
