This is one of my favorite local spots. It’s a nice trail through the woods for all skill levels and not too short. Just keep track of the trail signs or you could easily end up on another trail/mnt bike trail. Great if you’re local and want to get out for a quick hike but don’t have tons of time to burn.

Good easy trail. No big sights but the beaver brook.

Nice flat trail with some wildlife along the way. Lots of unmarked trails so it’s easy to get lost if you’re not paying attention.

Great long trail. Was a bit buggy so definitely bring bug spray. There is one part that was not clearly marked and I got turned around but overall great trail.

We did this trail a couple of weeks ago with 3 kids and a dog (kids aged 8,9,10). Trail was easy and mostly flat. It’s pretty long but the kids did well overall. Definitely would recommend.

Wow! This was an incredibly enjoyable loop! Easy hike/walk with great little nature surprises; ponds, creeks, woods, open areas, historical landmarks. Would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting a taste of nature close to home. Great for kids and pups too. Saw lots of mountain bikers so it must be awesome for that as well.

Nice spot to explore and trails are well marked. Long Pond is pretty and lots of different trails to take. Some muddy spots and wear the bug spray but otherwise very good.

This is a nice, scenic, long loop. The trail is well marked and doesn’t get too hazardous. There were some muddy patches, but it’s spring and that’s too be expected. Will definitely take my family along next time.

Muddy in some areas still, but most of the trail is fine. We hit roughly 5 muddy patches that really needed to be gone around (off trail) especially at the beginning.

I would expect the degree of difficulty as easy when ground clear. But was a little more challenging in slushy terrain after a few inches of snow last night and a quick melt on a warm day to follow. For the most part the marking is great, but the lollipop signs can be a bit confusing so be sure you watch the markings in all directions. Great exercise especially during these crazy times.

Great hike with the fam during these stressful times. I'm sure it was a little more crowded than usual with the current social distancing situation, but still a great time.
