Small parking area. We went past the reservoir then took a right to start the 2.3 mile loop. Trail started wide and rocky, eventually narrowed to footpath. Met only a few other walkers. Dog friendly on leash. Kids had fun on the hike as someone had painted shells and nailed them to various trees along the trail. Very easy to follow loop trail

Good trail - well kept. Park at Dow Brook Conservation Area - the trail in this ap states that it does not connect to the Ipswich Circuit Trail - but it does. No one was on it when I went

Great trail and easy to walk. Hot day and felt nice in the shade whole time. Lots of bugs in mid afternoon.

Easy walk, good for dogs. The second half of the walk was around the pond. Not super buggy or muddy, we didn’t wear bug spray and we were fine. Parking was also easy to find.

First to Review

Would not reccomend. Appears to be a trail around the Ipswich power source/water purification plant. Hiked in about half a mile and turned around. Saw lots of creepy abandoned buildings and litter on the ground. Save yourself the trip.
