Nice trail, challenging initial assent and good views. Veered off to middle trails on the way back and they were a bit overgrown but rain into a deer

Definitely a great hike! Wouldn’t recommend biking it. Highly recommend frolicking all the way to the top! Idea... picnic

It’s a great trail. Steep uphills and downhills sometimes which is a great workout. Only thing I didnt like was the part of the trail near the highway. The road noise was too loud. Also followed the gps on this app better than the signs on the trail itself.

Nice hike to get out of the city without actually leaving! It’s a quickie but has some great views of Boston!

Great trail, the one proposed on here isn’t super well marked out in the park so I used the gps on the app and that worked great. Great conditions and a good amount of elevation change so it made for a bit of a workout

Very steep road up and very steep trail down. Also quite lovely in the early spring.

11.02.19 my dog loves this park, but at this time of year they close the gate to the car road that lets you drive up to different sites in the park. only the main lot at the bottom of the hill is open. lots of foliage at this time of year, the off pavement trails can get quite scrambly and hard to stay on (nothing is marked). but overall we enjoy this park a lot

Super off-leash dog-friendly once you’re off the roads. Couples of nice up and downs—gets a little rocky and rough at a few points, but completely manageable! A pleasant hike all around.

I’ve come here twice only because it was convenient- it’s not necessarily a “destination trail”. That being said, it’s fairly well kept, a good off-leash walk for dogs, and the views of the city are decent.

Not a great trail. Tons of bugs. And the last part (if going counterclockwise) is overgrown and loose rocks.
