Nice little walk with the dog while we were in the area today. Fairly easy with a few inclines and muddy spots, but nothing major. Will be back in the fall!

Very flat, somewhat plain but nice breeze under tree coverage. Good quick walk!

Great trail but very confusing with the color marks. I got lost twice lol . Overall though it was a nice less crowded trail.

Great views of nature. Just the trails aren’t clearly marked. You could be following the orange trail for example, and all of a sudden not see which way to go. So a bunch of guessing, but overall a great trail and it’s hard to get lost.

This was a very enjoyable trail with plenty of options to extend the hike along the way, I will definitely be back to add to it! The trail was muddy in places but I was able to stop and dip my feet in the tub to wash my boots! I would definitely recommend this trail along with many others in Mendon Ponds!

Pretty easy and beautiful this time of year. One more week and you would be able to see every color of the changing leaves. Not marked super well but easy enough to navigate during the day. Love this one though.

Trail was rocky and muddy in areas, but that is what is to be expected at Devils Bathtub. That is part of the beauty of it, is that it’s natural and is an adventure, not a stroll down the sidewalk. It also appears that someone came in this summer and installed a new viewing platform at the start of the trail and they updated the boardwalk. It really needed it, the previous one was getting to a point of being unstable.

A bit muddy in spots. Trail wasn't clearly marked and I ended up on a different trail. Finally, I figured it out and walked the loop 3 times. Enjoyable.

Beautiful trail, but not marked very well. We followed what we though were the correct markers and ended up back at the car after just 3/4 mile, so we walked it twice. The 2nd time through we noticed a divergent path with a different color marker that we assume we should’ve followed to do the entire 1.9 miles. Very confusing.

Great trail, however I would consider this medium. There is a long staircase and quite a few ups and downs.

Didn’t exactly follow the trail but it was still fun. Raining and some trails were flooded so we had to find our own way. Had fun!!
