Nice trail with cool views along the way. One of the bridges was closed but I went under the rope - it was dry - assuming they never reopened it yet after all the rain we had

Another family hike here, but we tried another trail. It was fantastic although still slightly muddy. We hiked to Bluff Overlook, and it was worth it. The view was fantastic! The trail was a bit rocky and bumpy, but even the little ones were able to handle it. A great place!

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TRAIL UNTIL SEVERAL DAYS AFTER A RAIN. I don’t typically mind puddles and mud on a hike, so I came this afternoon just after a rain that ended early this morning. There was some mud and water that I was able to go through/around while keeping to the recorded route, but I reached an area that had major flooding (more than ankle deep) and no good way around and so decided to take a significant detour rather than turning back. Unfortunately, the map in AllTrails is not reliable if you veer off of the recorded path. The entrance to Forest Trail was nonexistent, so I had to trek through straight forest for a bit to find my way back to the trail. If I had something to clear brush, I wouldn’t have minded so much, but I didn’t so it was slow going. Other than that, it was enjoyable. I won’t be back so soon after a rain, though.

I really enjoyed this trail. Pretty views, one or two climbs (nothing too strenuous), and has something for everyone. Only reason it’s not 5 stars is because the bridge was out. I can’t wait to come back and see it when it isn’t flooded and everything is in bloom. It’s going to be gorgeous!

I spent two hours hiking the trails here with my husband and three young children (4, 4, 7). It was peaceful and a ton of fun. The trails were still a bit muddy and not always clearly marked, but we would definitely go back to check out the trail we wanted to do, but couldn't find. (We must have taken a wrong turn due to unclear signs) ultimately, it didn't matter. The trails were great and provided lots of exercise. Hills, rocks, mud, and trees down. A beautiful place!

Beautiful trails, well- maintained, great views and hiking. However, the map the Audubon Society provides is backwards! It does not match with any other map of the area and is very confusing.

Sap season in mid February certainly added to the pleasure as did a big breakfast at The Farmer's Daughter. The bat house and dozens of buckets on old sugar maples was great (though many were overflowing) and the beautiful walk through well marked trails was delightful. We saw a big Pileated woodpecker too!

Well marked trails. Nice views of southern mass. The cisterns, bat house, and vernal pool were awesome little touches that made the hike more than just a hike

Well maintained and well marked trails. We spent several hours there and only got to a few of the trails. Moderately challenging hikes. Nice staff. Looking forward to going back. Minimal bugs right now despite the recent rains.

Nice and wet but the rain held off today. This is a great place to hike/run even in the rain. Did both summits and saw a beautiful doe/deer deep in. I caught her eye...then she was gone!

A nice little walk, big downfall were the bugs. It must of been the time of year, but literally had to jog because the mosquitos were so bad. End the walk quicker because they were so bad. But good parking lot and easier trail

Moderate trail terrain. There are 2 climbs of less then 400' each. Worth the view at the top of Allens Bluff. The second climb is the Summit Trail to the fire tower (closed). Hiking poles a plus going up hill. Only about 2 hours and less then 4 miles. Great staff at visitor center.

We had a great time! Took my 4 and 7 year old kids. 7 year old had zero complaints 4 year old didn't love all the rocks throughout the trail. We saw a timber rattlesnake which was a little unsettling.. other than the snake awesome views of Gillette Stadium when the kids started to get bored we would come up on something new and interesting which was very helpful! Would definitely do this trail again!

We've been coming here for years and keep coming back for more! Great view of Gillette from the Bluffs, nature, and old rock foundations. We are having weird weather, so it's extra muddy and flooded out there right now (make sure you're wearing appropriate footwear). Although the trails are well marked, there are several paths that intersect, so make sure you keep a map from this app open or else you might be out there for longer than intended. The loop that is suggested in this app is 3 miles and takes about 2 hours (I'm also 5 months pregnant, so maybe you can nail it in a quicker time). Tip: pack a lunch and have a picnic at the bluffs. And again, the footwear is key this time of year.

Great place to clear the mind. Hiked to the highest elevation, not much of view from the top, because of trees and brush growth. Despite that, it's beautiful here! Birch trees, plenty of wildlife, with a bountiful splash of good old New England rock walls and barns. Several trails on location to choose from and trails are well marked.

Did this trail in late December 2016 with my sister. We found the trails to be well marked and well-maintained. The Bluff Trail had nice views looking towards Gillette Stadium - Foxboro. I will definitely come back and do this system of trails again.
