Nice place to walk the chipmunks there have bad gas I heard them all along the trail but despite the gassy rodents the trails are nice

Always a good walk. Easy loop with views of the North River. Just watch the roots, they’re exposed over most of the paths.

Lovely, easy walks among old trees, the North River and a scenic pond. Trails are well marked and nicely manicured.

This is a really great place to walk. Contrary to other reports, Norris is open all year. Very friendly people. Nice ponds, a stream, great for dogs. One of my favorite places to walk. If it's busy, you can park on the street or across the street at the Post Office without a problem.

My first trail - it was easy to follow, very pretty area, friendly people and loved the wild life. We saw snakes, a turtle, fish, chipmunks, and a herring. Made me look forward to future hikes :-)

Great trail, easy to follow. Loops by the North River, has a small barn/pier on it. Very friendly people. Usually there is plenty of parking, but if its a nice day, sometimes will have to use the street.

The trails are marked well and easy to follow. lots of friendly families and those with dogs had them on a leash and I didn't see any messes on the trails. I'll definitely be back!

Nice, short trail system with great views of the North River. You can get total distance of 2-4 miles running without covering too much of the same ground. Nice place to add a few softer miles on the legs if you are running in the downtown Norwell area.

Stepped out of my car and into a pile of dog poop, but it didn't end there. Despite many signs and FREE dog waste bags, the first 1/4 mile was a mine field, proving no matter how affluent the town, there are discourteous people everywhere. There's also a commonly ignored leash law as well, super nice to have your swamp soaked pup jump all over my children. It's a shame because it's a great walk for kids through many different ecosystems. My recommendation is to wear poop-proof boots and carry a big stick to ward off the muddy dogs.
