Nice, quick, easy trail to break up some down time with 7&3 year olds. Will come back with the dog.

Nice trail, about 2-miles around, fairly easy but good place to walk dogs.

Lots of side trails to check out but no signage. Good for wandering, was cool on an otherwise very hot day! Saw other dog owners, about half on-leash half off.

Have to walk around a bit for a view of the pond because of the trees and there is a lot of street noise but still a nice little walk.

Decided to hike this close to home trail after driving by it many times. Woods thick in spots, and pretty buggy. It is a swamp after all.... saw a deer and many birds. Overall a good simple hike.

An enjoyable walk through some of the older sections of Marblehead with some of the best harbor views in New England

First to Review

A decent trail. There are maps when you enter but no trail markers so it’s easy to get turned around a bit. Paths are well kept but for a swamp trail there’s no real view of the swamp. Some very charming areas near the lake, and we saw a family of wild turkeys LOTS of mosquitos. Overall not bad, but could use some markers.
