Trail is rocky in areas of the path, but overall well defined. Nice views along the way and smaller paths to get to the water as well. Weren’t too many people along the way, just be aware of mountain bikers as well!

We went Tuesday mid-morning with the dog and our two teenage boys. Dog was very willing, boys less so (but promise of junk food before/after tends to work on this problem). From the parking lot, we started out on the right by the field, and then went left over the dam and into the reservation. We followed the blue blazes and the trail was rocky and lots of roots. Use the map with this app and you can make your own trail/loop as needed. Outer edge becomes a wide, easy to navigate fire road for the most part, but it's more crowded. We veered into the inner areas once we left the water view and followed green blazes to Dungeon Rock, didn't see another person until we were on our way back to the car. All in all a good day. Bugs weren't too bad surprisingly, but bring bug spray anyway.

This was a great hike. We followed the green blazes which according to the sign was a 3.2 miles loop. As others have mentioned, it was definitely longer. There were a couple spots that were flooded and we had to go around but it wasn't too far off path. Not too crowded. The views are amazing!

These trails were very confusing. You try to follow one color on the trees but then they switch color and you dont know which trail to follow. The trails were beautiful and not hard at all but we got lost and spent an hour retracking our steps and which trail we were originally on to get back. We enjoyed the beginning of the adventure not so much the end.

5/21/20 wide and easy roads to walk on on this main loop, watch your feet on the rocks if detouring this route to the other trails. We brought masks and were able to take them off partially for some air when nobody was around, which was surprisingly often given the nice weather

We did the green trail! It says that it’s about 3.2 miles, but my all trails app tracked it closer to 4 miles. (We May have strayed slightly, but figured it’s worth mentioning!) Saw practically nobody the entire time until we got back closer to the parking lot. Definitely some moderate inclines so be prepared. Would say that “moderate” is an appropriate rating for the green trail. :) Beautiful trail!

Amazing trails! Easy to navigate, lots of shade, and beautiful scenery. I highly recommend packing snacks and making a day of it, what a great way to spend a day!

I wanted a long walk/hike but most of this route was dangerous with rocks roots and slanted routes because of being close to the water. I won’t do this one again and I love hiking...

Love this place. Been going to Lynn for ages and my dog loves it. Nice trails - well groomed and if you plan your route, you can easily do the 8 mile loop. Trails are dog friendly but some people that go there aren’t. I have a pittie mix and a group of 6 ladies jogging said they were going to “kick my f-Ing dog in the face”. My dog was nowhere near them. Just be careful.

Lovely walk but I would not rate this moderate as more than half the trail is on a road. Very pretty and peaceful though.

FEW FACE MASKS HERE! Only 1/3 of walkers wore face masks, and many didn't both with social distancing. Ruined our walk.
