Good start to hiking season. Easy and some elevation.

Body found at trout brook on Sunday, our family tried to hike on Saturday around 3:00pm but police sent everyone home.

Great park which I always love for nice leisurely hikes. Been going here since I was a kid (I mean I’m only 16 but still) and it’s still great. Good for all skill levels. Nice day as well.

Not a bad trail. Confusing at first as to where to start. Decent little hike with some cool stone structures in the quarry. Would come back if I lived closer.

Just a little muddy because it rained yesterday! Nice trail fairly smooth otherwise. At times a little difficult to follow because there are SO many different trails some of which are unmarked

Very nice hike with views of Salmon River and various fishing ponds. Well kept and well marked trails. Plenty of wildlife present and wild flowers in bloom. Family friendly for those with younger children.

Nice hike. Didn’t bring enough water on a day like today. No bugs which was nice. Muddy in some spots.

This was a strenuous but also beautiful hike. The vista views have now been obstructed by leaves on the trees. I’m just thankful that the end of the hike was the downhill section. Lots of change in elevation.

My husband and I visited this park over the weekend after I havent been here in years. I have to say I was VERY disappointed. I used to come to this park to go hiking and kayaking and always enjoyed it so i decided to take my husband here and make some new memories, it was a very bad decision. The park was overgrown, it was extremely buggy and I would not say that it was easy except for the very beginning up until you hit the trail areas. When you hit the actual trail areas it gets rocky and not well marked. I don't think we will be back to this park again.

great trail. easy hike for a beginner fur friend. parking is limited but there is parking outside of the trail head near residential living space not too far from the trail.

Well marked trail, few views but good paths. A little confused on the distance. The Matabesset/New England Trail sign at the Howd Rd trail head says it is 4.1 miles to Rt. 68, which would make it a 8.2 round trip, but All Trails says it is 7.3 round trip and my pedometer said 6.2. That’s quite a disparity! Still, about a 4 hour round trip that was challenging in spots and well worth it.

Great trail! No mud as of 5/25. We started hiking at 3pm, and it wasn’t crowded. The scramble is very doable

Wasn't fully mentally prepared for the amount of climbing haha, but tackled it nonetheless. Took 5.5 hours with 3 friends and one 9 pound mini dachshund, had to carry her from time to time but her size made it easy and she fully enjoyed all of this! beautiful views make this hike well worth it

Quick easy hike under 2 miles. Lots of trees down, so make sure you keep checking all trails. I did a small loop by accident. The waterfall is really nice. The tower is still there. You’ll miss it follow AllTrails. When you come to the intersection with the painted rock (red) you must stay left. Otherwise, you will continue on the trail and miss it.
