Nice hike, but it was extremely buggy today. Definitely bring your bug spray. Nice hike for kids and dog. Most of the trail is marked, but some parts aren't so be aware.

this is my kids favorite local hike! They call it the "haunted woods". If you are bringing kiddos follow the yellow arrows you will come to "the great climbing tree" the "stairs to nowhere" and the abandoned car (1952 Packard). Lots & lots of unleashed dogs but all we have encountered thru the years are super friendly along with the owners :) truly a beautiful place to explore & walk

Lots of different terrain. Due to its close proximity to us, we go there a lot so the dog can run around and swim. On clear days, especially when the trees are bare, you can see Mounts Wachusett and Monadnock from the summit. It’s easy to get lost if you don’t know your way around, new trails occasionally pop up. Luckily, the blazing, signage, and overall quality of the conservation area have improved over the last few years.

Nice little loop trail, no summit to speak of but a pond and some rocky outcroppings. Easy and quick.

Really wonderful area, feel like you are in the backcountry right in the middle of lexington.

So many bugs :-( but it was also humid that day in August so... Not our favorite but we will try it again another time.

The paths are well worn and easy to follow. Good for a convenient local walk.

A decent trail for a quick walk. Right near my house. I often trail run this as well. The climb up Whipple hill is nice and the view is refreshing.
