Great walk and hike. Tough navigating as the trails are not marked. Was still fun and plan to do it again! We went at dusk and we only saw 2 other people. Nice and peaceful!

As far as local suburban hikes go, this one is really fun. I drive by it every day and I always stop and hike if I have time. Multiple paths and a changing scenery. Don't bother with the posted trail maps, they're useless. Have a good sense of direction and go for it. When you reach what you think is the end at the power lines, you're only halfway in. Paths continue on the other side. It's a bit easier to get lost at this point and some of the paths lead onto private property. Otherwise, exelent little spot for hikers on the go.

i never knew this place had so much to offer, my dog and i had a blast exploring the trails, once we got past the field we did not see one person on the trail we took and it was great and she got to run off her leash. we ended up finding a little cliff too with a small brook at the bottom, it was a relaxing spot to take a break. will definitely be going back.

This is about an 80 acre or so property located across the street from Joe's Rock in Wrentham, MA. There are 2 color coded trails (orange and green). The orange is a shorter trail that keeps you closer to the parking lot, the green brings you further out. Unfortunately, it is easy to get confused because the signage is either missing or confusing. However, it is a great place for a quick walk/hike. I look forward to exploring more of the green trails and taking advantage of a small picnic area towards the back of pasture.

Joe's Rock: Great for a quick hike. Very nice view of the nearby pond and scenery. It can get busy fairly quickly, however, it is so short most people move along.
