Cool trail with an abandoned Cold War experimental radar installation at the top of the hill

Really nice well groomed but heavily worn trails (lots of roots and rocks), still very enjoyable though with some beautiful scenery, rock formations, and wetlands on the last leg of the hike. The reservation has a lot of other trails to be enjoyed as well.

We stuck to red and blue blazes, so we went off route from what was suggested a bit. It was a great varied trail and we didn't pass many people on a Sunday morning. I was a bit disappointed in mask compliance though, as there is a sign requiring masks at all times.

Excellent trail. Beginning somewhat hard to follow due to trail being mostly grass. Some parts semi blocked due to small fallen trees easy enough to go around. Overall great time with the pup.

there is limited parking here so we waited about 10 minutes and someone came out in the afternoon. better to go in the early morning or late afternoon I would guess. there is a $5 parking fee. and it is not closed!

This trail had a little bit of everything with several ecosystems so it was enjoyable. We entered the hike from a different section then recommended. We saw Boston Hill later in our hike. Nice view. There are some errors in the trail map especially between old Prospect trail and the Bog Trail. Private property has changed the trail and we had to go up the hill versus walking on the lower end of the meadow.
