Some parts are very peaceful, while you can walk on main road and have wonderful view of Boston from little prospect. Trails are either easy or moderate, with some hard trails, but there is plenty to explore. My dog also loves it here

Pretty good especially for this area. Lots of different trails to take - we went up on the main pavement route and it was a decent workout. Ok our way down, we went off on one of the smaller trails and it was really pretty and peaceful. Good for a little exploring.

I come here often to do my jog/training and with the reward of an awesome view at the top, you can't beat it!!

Decent outing. Unclear trails and a lot of the trip is on pavement. The tower at the top is kind of junk. Great views of the city, though.

Beautiful view of Boston, very easy for the most part. Great long walk with dog, mix of street, path and gravel. A gem for Waltham.
