Great trail, around 7 miles and some climbs which were not too bad. We took the grey arrow trail which was mostly well marked but the all trails pro map helped in more than 2 places. Coming upon the Nashua river towards the end was beautiful. Dog had a blast and my 16 year old who was complaining when we started off was happy towards the end.

Trails are in great shape. A word of caution to dog handlers. The stream past the railroad tracks was moving at a pretty good rate today even without recent significant rain. I knew my pal would go in before I got there and he really had to work hard to paddle back against the current. If it was any faster I think I would have had to gather him back downstream. Mild anxiety but we’re both fine.

This was listed as an “easy” trail but I’ve done trails listed as hard that were easier than this lol , very steep hills to climb and then get back down . Mosquitos were also AWFUL today

Great group of trails. Got 10 miles in with still many more trails to explore for future adventures. This group of trails is great for mountain biking if that is something you are into!

Both wide and narrow trails. Lots of lints in bikers but pretty empty on a really nice spring day

Great hike today on the loop. Mart Kong’s aren’t great so keep the app handy. Some steep hills and great views. Had lunch along the river. And peaceful not many people

Sunny mid day hike with the dog. Meandering paths and trails through the woods.Trails are marked but make sure you keep track of where you are. Looks to be excellent for trail bikes too.

This maybe nice when there aren’t any mosquitoes but on a warm day in October it was awful. We made it three miles before giving up due to the swarms that were relentless. I wish there was a map at the Trailhead. Lots of signs but no map to show you where they go. Well traveled trails though.

Nice place . When you park take trail to far left with green arrow . 2/3 of the trail follows the Nashua River . About 1 hour loop. A little buggy but nice hike

Great walking trail. It has several trails so you can choose your own length. Dogs are allowed off leash and everyone brings theirs. there is also a river which is beautiful to look at and for the dogs to play in.
