This is a great area with different well marked trails. I would rate it easy/moderate depending on the trail you choose. Plenty of shade and not very crowded. Highly recommend

Ended up having to cut across the reservoir half way but it was pretty nice. Pretty buggy but that’s to be expected. Only thing I would complain about is how confusing the trail markers were. Maybe I’m just blind but literally at one point we were way off trail but there was no trail that the map said to go on.

Great hike overall. I improvised a bit, but still ended up at 8.4 miles. Some moderate spots, but nothing too challenging. A few bugs, but not too bad overall.

Another great hike through the fells - definitely worth it when looking for a less strenuous hike. Can be heavily trafficked depending on the time of year

One of the longest and best hiking trail near Boston. I prefer to hug the pond more as it is more open and more scenic. The view particular from the eastern side of the trail is amazing. I would rate the difficulty as moderate at best and only because of all those hills.

Not hard. Pretty busy on the weekend until 5pm. Some people friendly, some sour. Limited parking. Castle closed both times I went.
