Nice trail with some easy ascents and descents. Park by wachussetts state park or a couple of hard to notice parking spaces south of the trail head.

Started on Thompson Road and took the Midstate Trail (Dicken's Trail) north to the summit. Very nice and relatively easy. A few hundred meters before crossing Westminster Road you'll see some beaver activity to the east. Can't miss it.

I've done this trail a few times and you can deviate onto various other paths that lead to the summit or just stay on the MST. Either way, lots of nice scenery and wilderness. Total trip up and back is about 5.5 miles.

Went from Redemption Rock to Crow Hill Pond and Back.

The trail was well maintained. A few spots of having to scramble on rocks (which I love) and one steep ascent. Rewarded with a beautiful view and a nice dip in the pond.

Maybe 90 minutes of hiking in each direction.
