Not super well marked, but I had cell reception during most of it allowing us to follow our loop. My 3 year old walked the majority of the trail!

Fairly easy hike. Pretty quiet and peaceful. Parking is tricky, I parked at Walden Pond where there is a charge and the lot fills up very fast. Hike to the back of Walden Pond, cross the rail tracks and you will be in Wright Woods. Great hike with kids. There are many forks in the trail, as there are several short cuts and those weren't labelled very well.

My friend and I took our horses here on a weekend and we pleasantly surprised. We didn't come across too many people and there was a few places to go down to the river with our horses to get in the water. Some trails which are marked very well were too rocky for the horses to go down but there were alternative routes. There was even a side trail with some homemade jumps to spice things up a little. My horse is tall so some tree branches were a little low for me but they weren't impassable. There are two different parking areas and the one we parked at didn't leave a lot of room for the truck and trailer but we made it work. We will definitely go back.
