Good trail and my dog loved it, but beware the trails are not marked and it’s easy to get off track!

Went on a pretty nice walk with my dog. Well marked trails, saw a few other dogs on walk, but not crowded. Parking is 5 dollars, unless you are a member, but it goes to maintaining the park. I did see a horseback rider on the trail, which my dog is not a huge fan. Very muddy, happy I wore waterproof footwear.

A little known section of Hale reservation south of Powisset Street. Initial trail boarders the west side of the Dover Transfer Station. This is a popular spot for a few local mountain bike enthusiasts. Good stuff for trail runners. Lots of roots, rocks, and ledges. The first ledge you encounter, kind of a side path to get there actually, is magnificent. This is a real treat, enjoy!
