HikingGreat!

The trails are gorgeous in the fall. There are several access points to get down to the Charles, and the foliage on the river was spectacular this time of year. It's a wide, flat, and well-maintained trail. Highly recommend checking this place out.

When we got here a sign said that we would need to purchase timed entry tickets through Eventbrite. It cost $ 27.74 for two adults and two children. The sanctuary was beautiful! Crunchy leaves, fall colors, beautiful marsh with turtles, snakes, ducks and so much more.

Well maintained trail with picturesque views. We picked it since it was rated easy and we wanted a good trail for our toddler to get some practice walking. Nice local find, would visit again.

Beautiful surrounding, but would recommend downloading the app from Mass Audubon in addition to AllTrails. Some of the routes don’t match and it’s confusing. Charles River Loop is a nice steep challenge.

Good but not great. Crowded at the beginning. Worth the hassle of online reservation/entrance fee and a 1.5 hr drive . . . maybe. I’ll give it another chance in the Fall or Winter.

Glacial Hill Loop is a bit off-the-beaten-path, but definitely worth it. Lots of hills and cool views. So many bugs though!

Very easy trail and extremely well marked (painted dots, reflectors, or ribbons). Will go back in the spring for the wildlife but great hike for someone wanting not much elevation.

I'm sure it is a beautiful place. Just wanted everyone to know that they do not want you to use this for running and I was friendly but firmly sent away.

Great trail! We did over 4 miles- only tracked the last bit of our hike. Great bird watching spots and outs of turtles and frogs. Little bit of bugs but not bad.

This is a great hike. Many other trail options in the sanctuary besides this loop. Diversity in habitats. I will be back in the fall
