Not a very busy trail when I went which I like. Close to the highway though. Great for a quick walk.

Great trail. Well marked, secluded but could hear cars from the highway. The white trail is overgrown but has a nice view at the end. The red trail will get your heart pumping since this is where you reach some elevation. Dog and I enjoyed it very much.

A nice hidden gem! It does start at the end of a cul de sac which is weird, but there is plenty of parking. The trails are really nice. The red trail brings you quite close to the highway, but it's a nice trail nonetheless. Great trail system for kids. Will definitely be back.

Well marked trail. A little muddy in spots but to be expected. It is a nice little hike and looking forward to going back in the spring and summer.

I had more time to spend here this trip. There is some beautiful scenery here such as beaver ponds, streams, glacier boulders, and what is purported to be a Native American shelter. The only negative is you are never far away from the gentle roar of the interstate.

Easy trail. One small incline. Great bridges across the wet areas. If you catch the right time you see a lot of ducks on the pond.

I got 2.35 miles running the big loop but super fun! Very well marked and went from easier to more difficult back to easier. Very much enjoyed it!

I love how it is a very secluded area because my dog doesn’t like people or animals so we didn’t see a single person so it was easier to get him some exercise! Very nice scenery as well!

We did the blue trail. Nice hike through the woods. Would have added the yellow portion but the mosquitos were abundant. Use insect repellent. Parts of trail are a little mushy. Quiet and peaceful. We were the only ones on the trail.

Parked in the main lot then headed out on the Orange Mountain Road Trail. Went along the ridge trail then bushwacked up onto the higher ridge to see over at the Pond. Made the turn at the Mass Pike then came back along Walker Pond which was like glass. Really nice apres-Turkey Day trot!
