I loved this trail, it wasn’t too busy and dogs are allowed off leash.

a nice trail around the pond. great little hike up horn pond mountain!

one of my favorite places on earth. majestic, serene and peaceful always. great place for a dip in the summer!

best views of the boston skyline at the top of north drumlin! great little hike. love the harbor islands so much!

Hiked the 2 peaks and along the river. It was a total of 6.25 miles. A lot of nice and varied scenery along the way. The yellow loop is steep in spots.

Really enjoyed this trail and we took our 2 year old with us (we had a carrier).

Many different trails. Followed skyline trail. Plenty of climbs. Good workout. Definitely recommend to bring good trail shoes or hiking boots, water. Trails are well marked.

We didn't do the whole route. I went with my sister. I parked at the 4H Camp in Spencer. She picked me up and we drove to East Hill Road in Rutland to start the hike on that end. Took us 2-1/2 hours.

It was fun! Nice easy trail. We took our time, took some pictures. I can see it getting pretty wet in a few spots if it had rained recently.

Note: When you come out on Browning Pond Road where you're not near the pond (it comes out on that road twice), the trail marker sends you to the right. You need to go left.

The waterfall was stunning. We parked on the Mass side but also chose to go along the NY side and back. It was a lovely hike!!

Fun trail! Would say more light than moderate, but still a nice way to end the day!

An absolutely wonderful way to see Boston and learn a lot of history!

Beautiful and easy, important to know this is a paved trail.

Good workout in a relatively short amount of time. Trail is well maintained and there are some nice views at the top. Tends to be very crowded.

The route I took was a little different but the hike was great and the mountain house was very cool. Check out my full write up along with pictures and things to look out for.

We took our dog here on a sunny day and had a good time. We saw turtles, a blue Herron, and lots of birds. The walk near the water was beautiful and the trails are well marked. Take note of which entrance you used into the park so you don’t get lost, there are a lot of loops that cross over each other and we ended up taking a route that was twice as long as anticipated. Very easy hike with the dog and I would definitely go again!

3 hour easy hike- we went the opposite way around this loop. Weird logging at the top of the hike that threw me off, but still worth the drive. Make sure to check out the waterfall!

Love walking through the dunes. Did the loop at sunset, so pretty! Relatively easy, but walking on/sinking into the sand adds to the difficulty a bit.

Beautiful trail. Well marked and easy to follow. There were less than a handful of downed trees in the path but they are very easy to step over. They are doing a great job clearing them away.

Nice little wander around the bog. Super easy, very flat for strollers and maybe a little windy in the winter.

Ample parking.

There is no reason this trail is rated as moderate. It is wicked easy. We would bring out 2 year old to walk this trail- sometimes he hitched a ride- but you get the idea.

Very beautiful spot, strongly recommend this walk. Lots of wildflowers until about July. Lots of poison ivy and be sure to check for ticks!

Under the logs you may find some newts (or snakes)!

essentially a dog area near town. Lots of ticks.

Best to go in the winter during the day and have the place to yourself. Pretty enough but not the best trail on the island

Great spot for a family walk (with dog). There were several trails that you could access from the one parking area. We enjoyed the blue trail and got to see some boulders for the kids to climb and explore around. We encountered several other hikers many with dogs and ok friendly.

A solid 4 hour hike. I did the windy route out and the long straightaway back. Very poor signage, so be sure to have your phone battery charged and your AllTrails map open. The straightaway wasn't crowded at all, but the ten or so people I saw were all on that section. The windy trail was silent and empty. Nothing but nature sounds, and it was grand. I strongly recommend it for people who are trying to recharge in solitude or who seek privacy with their significant others. I barely needed water given the meager altitude. The windy trails are a mountain biker's dream, but they're fun to hike as well. A solid 4 stars for the serenity and the unique views of the old canals and locks that connected Providence to Worcester.

Nice, no litter but a few dog poop bags ! Why pick it up only to leave plastic bag behind ? Otherwise really enjoyable. Whistling Cave trial was my favorite. Will definitely be back.

Did this by accident because the rock circuit is poorly marked. Decent run.

Started at the Powissett entrance and walked on a few of the marked and unmarked trails. Definitely coming back - trails well maintained, dog friendly, very nice area. Parking is a little tight in that lot.

Quick & easy...great views!
