Great views of Boston and beyond from Two observation towers. Fells is the Saxon word for " rocky, hilly area", the route travels to the higerst points in this section of the reservation, Its rocky and hilly both. On the open areas notice the multitude of scrape marks on the igneous rock, caused by the retreating glaciers. From the two towers get a great view of Boston and the reservation. Youll pass over an old Soap Box Derby track and next to the Sheepfold, where sheep grazed for hundreds of years. Now a popular spot for dogs to run free.

Good trail but easy to get lost. I stuck with the white trail markers which lead to the tower. Easy enough to do with dogs.

The parking lot fills up pretty quickly on weekends, so arrive early. Trail can be tough to follow in some spots with so many trails intersecting, so grab a map at the trailhead. Great hike considering how close it is to the city.

Nice enough hike given how close it is to the city. Rocky and with enough small hills to be a good little workout and prep for hiking in points north.
