Getting There

A short trail with parking at the trailhead that leads into the Pulpit Rock Preserve trail system. Great all year hiking (snowshoes or spikes recommended in ice/snow weather). Mellow for kids. End of trail features Pulpit Rock, an amazing mini canyon/waterfall feature that is smack dab in the middle of this wildlife preserve. Wildlife includes birds (including various raptors, turkeys, woodpeckers), deer, beavers, groundhogs, porcupines, beavers, and even the occasional weasel if you know where to look. This trail leads to the center of the Pulpit Rock nature preserve and features many different short trails that allow you to piggy back through the system and even all the way to Joppa Hill Farm.

The trailhead has ample parking and a garbage bin. There is a secondary parking lot off of Pulpit Road that gives access to the trail system through the Gage's Mill Trail.

The Kenard trailhead and parking lot is located in Bedford on New Boston road, just east of the New Boston town line. The parking lot is located on the south side of the road.

Martin is very hilly but still doable! I wore spikes on my boots and was fine but most people were in snowshoes

This was a fun little hike. The Ravine trail was a little more challenging but still easy to navigate.

Lovely on a Fall day. A bit of a challenge to walk an excited puppy without tripping. I would recommend this trail.

It wasn’t sunny making it pleasant day for trail. The streams are all dried up. Got little derailed but enjoyed it thoroughly.

Nice hike with the toddler and the grandparents. Was not as nice this month as all the water falls and streams were all dried up.

Hiking

Beautiful place. Though there are no mountaintop views, there is quite a bit of geographical and topographical interest. The trails are very well marked, and with the exception of a few boardwalks, usually wide enough to maintain a safe distance from others. Once we got past Pulpit Rock there were few people, even on a Saturday. The one big drawback is that it seems to be near a shooting range, so the first mile or more of our hike was accompanied by gunshots.

Nice trail, great for our dog as well. A little buggy (to be expected) so remember your bug spray.

lovely little walk in the woods! Took the ravine trail for the extra challenge, and it was SO beautiful. Well worth it if you're able. Can't wait to do it again!
