The trail is primarily used for hiking, mountain biking & walking and is accessible year-round. This specific trail is really a nice biking route through the woods and you'll be treated to a tower climb about 1/3 of your way along your loop trip. There are plenty of signs to help you along the way. Try to stay on the mountain biking loop which is the best one for bikers.

I want to hit this trail for a winter hike. Would I be ok with just spikes? Or are snowshoes needed?

Nice views of reservoirs but way too crowded. Parking lot mobbed. Could have a long wait. Granted it was a nice Sunday in the summer. Would only come back on a weekday

Did a trail run on the reservoir loop. Had a really good time. it's a decent distance, technical enough to keep you entertained and the terrain is not too uneven that it gets uncomfortable running. The trail was well marked with orange paint and I had no trouble staying on track. I will definitely do it again.

Beautiful area to hike, run, bike, and play. Just be careful if you're on a time crunch- the Skyline trail tends to start and stop quite often and you can easily get off track. I wound up going in circles for about an hour and had a flight to catch! Another tip: arrive early. By 11:15 there were people lined up looking for a place to park.

Solid biking for Eastern MA. some really technical and tight single track but mainly large open fire roads. There is an old paved soapbox derby track that is fun to fly down.

Really only gets busy on weekends. Slightly heavier traffic after work hours.

Please don't ride in spring. The soft earth can't take the punishment.

Followed the white skyline trail, which is about a 7 mile loop. Was well directed, there were white signs everywhere (just make sure you are looking for them or else you may get diverted to another trail). Overall, was a nice hike, but there are no mile markers so you are not sure how far you have gone at any time. Also kinda rocky, so make sure to have some good, sturdy shoes on!

Excellent trails here! Great for trail running and we brought our dog, several spots for her to swim, shaded trails, great scenery. We were there on a Saturday and it wasn't too crowded! Drove by a few parking lots all with a spot or two available, we parked as close to the lakes as we could get. Great times!

Nice network of trails, somewhat challenging due to the occasional uphills and the distance (~7mi)
