Great place to get the dog out and burn off some energy. Nice big dog park with a large and small dog areas. There's a nice well marked loop that's great for everyone...a bit bumpy with the stroller; though passable with a BOB. If you're feeling adventurous there are some off shoots that are less well maintained but fun.
Loring S. on Mattabesett and Mount Higby Trail
A nice patch of woods in a semi-industrial area. See my full write up which includes directions and other things to look out for.
Too close to noise for me, although I got a little lost and it was slushy as heck yesterday so it wasn't as enjoyable as I would have liked. Lost track of the trails in the snow even though they are well lit I ended up on 3 different routes but still made it back without a problem. Beautiful view and I only went a mile in!
