Great place to walk or run. Very well maintained. Follow the blue blazes and hike to Heublien Tower via the Metacomet trail! Can be muddy if you choose this route.

Easy walking around the main loop. A ton of trails to explore in and around the main loop. Great views.

This would be better if I wasn’t chased by a terrifying man the last time I was there

This is one of my favorite walks/runs locally. Always peaceful, easy going very fellow walkers.

great spot for a flat run with a nice view

Easy hike with some beautiful views! Lots of little trails you can take to extend the hike some.

Nice place to take your dog for a walk or go for a stroll - there are two paths you can take. It’s a good alternative to walking on the bike path if that’s a bit further of a drive. It’s also a good spot to go snowshoeing when there’s snow.

For a walking/jogging trail absolutely beautiful for a road bike trail way too many bumps an not in some areas. The whole path just need to be repaved.

Great hike with a great view!

Great view, great zen

Relaxing trail with beautiful views! Runners, horse-riders, bikers; lots of outdoorsy people! Make sure you explore the northern trails, too! Pretty amazing!

Great for first timers, nice view

easy, pretty river walk. if the cars would slow down it would be 5 stars.

Easy, flat trail to take my six year old dog along. Great views of the water throughout.

Great for trail running!l Loop is 4.5 miles. This is a gravel trail for the most part. Follow signs to Bluff Point to Sunset Rock to Mumford Cove. You will love the views too!

Easy trail with the dog. About 10 minutes in there was a bug attached to his face. Might’ve been a tick but we managed to get it off. One side is fairly muddy and wet but the other side is dry and has a nice clearing of the reservoir.

walk this trail often. love it.

Perfect spot for a run!

I don’t know if it is supposed to be a secret to be discovered on your own once you get here, because two minutes into my walk I realized that the green grass and trees around me was a run down golf course and I was walking on a cart path. I have not seen anyone mention this on any of the posts. It was a good walk with enough hills to stretch the legs.

I think some of these reviewers are talking about Ross Pond not Ross Marsh which are very different. Ross Marsh has little parking and a very short trail.

Path was rocky and easy to turn an ankle on but beautiful view at the midway loop. Definitely would run here again!

Easy hike, beautiful views, lots of people but not too crowded

I ride my bike here all the time! Great rail path for biking, running, snowshoeing, and strollin’. Great scenery all around you, and cool off-shoots into the Valley Falls Park trails. It can be high traffic around the parking lot areas, but there’s nice quiet stretches in between.

This is my favorite hike!!!

First time here - we (my puppy and I) loved it!

Super scenic, paved and Unpaved options. Deer, woodpeckers.
