This is a very large trail system. Although landlocked, you really do feel like you are deep in the forest (despite hearing the highway traffic in some areas). Hikers do need to take caution, as these trails are primarily used for mountain biking. I actually kept one headphone out so that I could hear anyone coming up behind me so I could step aside. I covered about 3-4 miles, and probably passed 8-10 bikers. Overall, a great, well marked trail with a lot of cool boardwalks, and trail variation. Can get buggy!

Went for run here, many options for trails. Mostly wooded once your off power lines, just get your bearings before heading in because many trails divide again and again. Used yellow trail mostly, great run but had to resort to trail map near end to get back because not marked at every fork. Great spot to enjoy!

I spend a lot of time on these trails. Good variety of terrain so close to Boston. Also a good amount of wildlife, including deer, foxes and owls.

I've hiked these trails a few times but this was my first MTB ride here. Not quite the experience I was looking for this time around (wider, flatter trails), but I had fun nonetheless. Trails are very narrow at times, almost always rocky with lots of roots. Despite many boardwalks and bridges I managed to find some mud, even though it hasn't rained in days. The Milk Crate trail was fantastic, with numerous switchbacks and drops - highly recommended if you're intermediate/advanced.

My favorite mountain biking spot in the area! Lots of variety and intermediate level trails. Rocky, Rooty trails with lots of swooping downhill single track and very well maintained. Some technical stuff has been built if you can find it. Also wood planks and raised sections around.

Nice place to walk. Second growth forest with very well maintained trails. Very clean but a little close to the highway.
