Extremely well marked. Not too hard but not boring either. Wear bug spray!

Really loved this trail! Definitely best to go off the main Old Salem Road and hike the outer trails. The red trail (toward the end of our hike) got just a tad confusing and we ended up walking up to someone's property, but we actually only missed the last turnoff by about 50 yards.
Nonetheless, this was one of our favorite trails we've ever taken. Lots of wooded areas and giant stones and a really cool overlook by the water (Ledge Hill Trail). We will definitely be back to this one!

I took Old Salem trail to Long hill trail. This was a moderate challenge. Lots of rocks and roots randomly sticking out of the trail. Hiked up to the scenic view of Gloucester Harbor. As I was walking this trail there were huge boulders that were tossed up there by glaciers. The rocks tower over you. Some look like they have moss or furry buildup of some sort on the rocks. Awesome hike. Need to explore more of this place. Easy to follow trails.

Love it here! And so doesn't the pooch. They've Done a wonderful job at keeping markers and maps around the trails so you never feel lost or wandering.

Very clean, quiet. Great for dogs and easy enough for a 4 year old companion. Nice view of Gloucester Harbor. Definitely coming back to explore other trails.
