It was not very well marked and strayed off the trail a couple of times. Cell signal is not reliable out there! But beautiful and peaceful.

This trail is like walking in a forest - lots of trees, some ponds and streams and no people. We followed the AllTrails map So we didn’t have a problem following the trail. All in all, quite nice.

Nice trail with many trails that run off the main trail. Not very buggy but trails could be marked better.

This trail is superb but extremely hard to find. I had to use Google navigation to know where to park. There are no signs on the street that indicate you’re by a preserve. Parking is on the street only. There’s a small shoulder where about 4 cars can park. I would have missed it altogether if I hadn’t seen one car parked already. To get to the trailhead you walk down a dirt driveway. It feels as though you’re walking to someone’s house. Once on the trail the signage is excellent. Beautiful sights to see on this trail—The blooming water lilies on Mink Pond are a bonus!

The lady slippers are out right now (late May)- look for them in the pine meadows near the pond.

This is a “deer tick habitat” so definitely keep dogs leashed. I’m glad we wore boots - it’s muddy and crosses some streams. Getting to the Hubbard Hill High Point was a little tricky because of some brush across the trail, but it was easy to navigate otherwise. Pretty little hike!

Great early spring hike today. We extended our loop just about as far as we could. Clocked in slightly above 5 miles for a great afternoon! There was a section of trail marked for dry season use; we attempted it as part of our loop and found small sections muddy but nothing too bad. Would definitely do this again!

Nice flat trail. If continue straight on Highwater Trail (straight out of parking area) will reach Estabrook in perhaps 2 miles or so

Keits took hostage Keesa and began building a bonfire scrambled thru woods to rescue vehicle. When we took control we croaked the whole jauner.

Around mile 2.5 of my recording the trail goes off into the woods not on an actual physical trail. I instead followed the physical trails but they were pretty overgrown.

The little black flies / no-see-ums were the worst I have seen anywhere. There were literally clouds of them around our heads. They were the worst in the Harvard section of the property. We cut our hike short because of them. Would like to do this again when the flies weren't out.

HIKERS BEWARE: there are cameras all over these trails. what started as a feud between a landowner & the town has resulted in a pretty menacing vibe in these woods.

Easy path, a little rocky so wear appropriate shoes. No steep incline. Nice and serene.

My family and I set out on this hike today (mid September). We have to say that, though this is a lovely place, we did not find it to be really kid friendly. The trails were narrow in parts with enough poison ivy to make us turn back at points, though our kids were in shorts. There were many signs warning about ticks. We took care, using our own insect repellent and that kindly left at the start of the trail, we still found a couple on us when we got home. The paths were well marked in the Concord area but less so once we left that part of the park. In fact, a good section of the walk, over Hubbard Hill, seemed to leave the paths completely in violation of the signs outlining the private land owner’s wishes. To sum up, this is a beautiful place but, mainly because we had to be constantly on the look out with the kids, it wasn’t a relaxing experience.

Lovely spot; open woodlands, beautiful marshes and ponds. Very few other people there on a warm June Saturday. Easy parking on Monument Street. Highly recommended!
