Lots of boggy areas and wandering through what feels like people’s backyards. The maps are good, but often mislabeled as to what color they are.

HikingGreat!Snow

This was a great winter hike. Someone has clearly groomed the trails, so it was easy even through the uphill and downhills to navigate all of the colored trails at Great Hill. We encountered a number of people with their dogs, so there was a lot of masking and unmasking, but it was a lovely snowy walk.

The traffic noise was a bit annoying, but otherwise an enjoyable romp through the woods. In these days of Covid, happy to report that every one I ran into was wearing a mask. And only encountered 1 wayward off leash dog. Only did the yellow loop. Plan to go back and try a bunch of the blue trails.

WalkingGreat!Rocky

I love this trail for walking my dog. There is a lovely dog park halfway through with a little pond and a large field. The trail isn’t too long but it is nice and a good walk. One of my favorite quick walks to do because she loves the walk and the park!

Nice easy trail. Mostly flat. Hard to follow the trail in spots because of the leaf cover. Some trail markers too far apart.

Great to sneak out of your home for a quick run or walk. Perfect with elevation and loops.

We took a slightly alternate path this time through that ended up adding half a mile to the hike. it was a good hike on a weekday afternoon. It was relatively lightly traveled, but there were a lot of rocks and roots that we had to pick over pretty carefully at times. In general however we like the path.

Great hill grand tour! I went up the hill in the center 3 times, to get more practice with hill climbing. Now I'm sore.

This is a good trail for heading over to the “dog park” behind the Acton Fire Station. But it is SUPER SUPER rocky and you can’t take a step without looking at your feet. So not that enjoyable really. The trails are well looked after and it’s a decent loop.

The yellow trail is shady for a hot day. It has variety of vegetarian and a large boulder from glacier time. It can be a bit rocky with tree roots. I would not say it is easy but more of moderate. We truly enjoyed it.
