This map is a bit misleading. The are actually multiple entrances to Rocky Narrows, and this loop is just one access point. Many people who have reviewed the trail are referring to a larger trail that's located at a different access point. The two trails do connect, but it's not clearly marked. This access point has more parking, but you'll have to trek a bit to get to anything scenic (the blue trail, easily found at the other main access point, is the most scenic), although the red trail has paths that lead to the river, which is great. However, there are only a handful of parking spots at the other access point, located near the Forest St & E Goulding St junction. The hiking is easy to moderate, and while the views aren't breathtaking, they're lovely and serene. An active 4 or 5 year old could handle it without much trouble, and it's a great spot for dogs.

Parked at the Main Street trailhead and went directly to the train tracks. Picked up the Red Trail and did that loop returning the same way. It was raining a bit but still quite pleasant. The choo choo train came chugging down the tracks, that's always a thrill.

Go from the other side off Forest Street and take the steep trail up to the top of the overlook for a fantastic view over the Charles River. About a 2.8 mile loop.

This trail loop was pretty easy with little terrain and a lot of vegetation surrounding the trail, as well as lots of huge coniferous trees. No views whatsoever, but some nice little places along the trail. I wouldn't recommend this as a scenic trail, but is a nice walk in the woods

Beautiful scenery, forest, marshland and views of the Charles river. Easy mile hike, certainly check out the blue trail to get the best views!

There are some great views of the Charles river from some of the higher elevation! It's quiet and a great way to enjoy nature. The one downside was that the trails were not well marked and sometimes led to a dead end.
