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.

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.
