Ok hike. Relatively flat. Minor Views when going through the fields and walk by some ponds and streams for part of the way. Got to wave to the cows. Can be muddy after rain so bring boots

Easy walk. Very little altitude which makes it a nice nature walk. It can be muddy if it rained recently. We brought our dog. It was easy for him to walk w us. There’s opportunity to take pictures of landscape and animals. We came across cows and horses. They were in fences but we were able to be very close to them.

The map on AllTrails doesn't actually include Cabot Trail. It's the white blazed trail about a mile down the Charcoal Burners (red) trail, and will take you down to Jordan Pond (worth a look). There is a nice rocky overlook above the pond that has a little bench, just off the trail to the right. Good place to stop and take a break. Then you continue along a short way until you come to the Perkins Trail in a clearing. Go right toward the horse farm. If you do it that way it's an 8+ mile hike. I liked seeing the horse rehabilitation center, and the area along the Perkins Trail that parallels the creek is nice, but this hike is lacking in views or any outstanding features. Lots of beautiful mountain laurel, ferns and a few lakes to gawk at, but I don't think I'd do it again when there are so many better local trails.
