Parked at main lot then started clockwise up behind Northeastern Field. Bushwacked around a bit then got on trail up to Westfield Street. Continued on quiet Westfield St to entry point near Water Tower. Checked out the Water Tower then came down to Blue trail and marked vista point and Wilson Mtn summit as waypoints. A nice property.

Good Short hike. Right by Dedham dog park. So you can easily combine the two.

Nice lunch break walk! My husband took it nicely-he is 6 month post-op hip replacement and took it easily.

My dog loves this place in the summer. There is a little watering hole that a lot of people take their dogs swimming in. Technically, dogs have to be on leash but at this spot no one really cares as long as the dogs are behaving. I've been going here for years and only had one issue with the leash. Lots of little trails to go on. Nothing is too difficult.

Enchanting hike through pine and deciduous forest. I felt like I was in New Hampshire. The trails are are well-marked and there are lots of roots coming through in spots. the only downside was hearing the traffic going by on a nearby road for some of the hike. Lots of birds and mosquitoes so bring your bug spray.

Great local trail with nice little climb and if in the winter /fall you can see the city. Enjoyable flat trail on loop back with vernal pools and glacial erratics. Perfect for kids and dogs.

Fun trail. Pretty easy for our 6 year old kiddos and fun with big boulders to climb. There are good short cuts off the main long path for a bail out. Lots of dogs and families.

We got lost at the beginning, but then we had lots of fun and the kids really enjoyed it. It's an easy trail for the winter. I can't wait to hike it in the summer.

Nice, well-marked trail with great views/scenery. Good for a quick hike....start from the left entrance for a more challenging climb to the peak.

Loved this- beautiful, easy, easy to get to. For a Labor Day holiday practically had the place to ourselves. Will do again.

1.5 hours / 2 mile loop with 4 year old and 2 year old on my back. Beautiful maintained trail. Natural stairs, cool bridges, streams, monstrous rock formations. Slippery in January but expected. Nice trail, some piles of dog crap but whatcha going do.

nice little trudge up a hill, if you stand on the boulder at the tops you get a pretty good view of some buildings in Boston. its well marked & a great place if your bringing your dog for a walk. even though there are lots of dogs up there, people seem to be respectful & clean up afterwards. not very challenging but a beautiful place none the less.

It's good for a quick little hike but way to short for my liking. It is in great condition though and truly is good for all skill levels. Fun but not very challenging
