nice trail to take while waiting for kids skiing at wachusetts. trailhead is at parking area 2

Amazing amazing amazing hike. I will bring my hiking stick with my next time to help me with the hills. I will absolutely be back.

I took my cousin here. On a clear day, when you stand at the shoreline, you can see Mt. Agamenticus in York, ME.

I went about 14 miles out and then turned around. 28.03 miles I think my phone said. But what a beautiful trail. I hope to one day finish the whole thing. That's on my "someday" list, no doubt!

Switchback, switchback connector and felton trails are all old ATV trails in terrible shape- eroded, often very wet. Mountain bikers haven't used this section in years and the Gorge trail is not used by them either. Otherwise-yes its pretty in there but bring a compass or a gps to help if you get lost .

Nice views of the pond, two benches on the way. Brought my dog and she had fun. Junk littered around the entrance way.

I followed GPS to this trailhead, but it ends up at a school, so there really is no public parking as such, as near as I could tell, and I looked, so I have to give this one three stars for the inaccessibility.

I love that there are miles of trails right in my back yard. The trails are both challenging and easy depending on which color you take. There is even a small waterfall stream if you follow it deep enough. The only thing holding me back from giving it 5 stars is that there are a number of coyotes back there. I saw one dead from natural cause as well as two living ones. There are also homeless people in tents back there. There are beer cans and human feces around their camp sight. My dog got into it and was lethargic and mildly seizing after that walk... Hopefully they were asked to leave after reporting it. Don’t let that deter you from exploring these trails. Just be safe and travel in a group!

What a beautiful hike. I planned to hike for about a mile along one side of the river the cross over and hike back on the other side. Unfortunately when I got to the ford, it wasn’t passable. So I had an enjoyable time retracing my steps. The ice formations in the river were spectacular!

A nice trail and well marked which is greatly appreciated.

Awesome trail

The trail has gotten steeper over the years. It’s a nice trail that leads to the beach. You can see seals often times as well. Great place to meditate.

Ticks in the summer. Great walking, biking, running, etc. great for dogs / kids / anyone. You’ll see wildlife and some interesting boats. Lots of different places to park and walk so you see something new all the time.

Very icy but expected in February!! Great first outing for 2019. Can’t wait to go back in the warmer months.

Great trail some spots really icy need crampons

Many pretty sections, but multiple areas where trail is difficult to navigate due to ice, marshy ground, deadfall, and/or high stream water levels

Icy!! But beautiful!!

this was one heck of an experience! At some point the trail was all washed out and everything was swampy and flooded and had to find alternate route. Really made it one heck of an adventure!

The beginning of this loop is a dog-poop museum but once you get deeper in the woods, you see less of that. Well-marked trails with lots to see; forest, meadows, ponds, etc. No real views.

Would definitely wear traction. Lots of ice, snow probably halfway up.

not what I was looking for

Very icy conditions so micro spikes was an absolute must. Looked like someone ran the Zamboni up the trails some parts. Nice hike overall with good views from the top.

Trail starts out as a road/4x4 trail. about 1.5 miles in, the trail splits off but the road keeps going. Its extremely easy to miss because the trail is basically a creek bed.. there is only a small post in the ground to let you know this is a trail. Due to the warm weather this trail was miserable.. constantly breaking through the ice and stepping in water. Would probably be very easy in the summer, though the appalachin trail route, though slightly longer is more scenic.

For extra fun, try this without micro spikes.

Poorly marked, but a fun hike

I think this place is really good and the area around here is absolutely beautiful. however I went there on February 9th 2019 and the last tenth of a mile before the trailhead was closed with a gate saying that the winter hours are something like 12 to 5 so there was no apparent way to access the trail. this may have been a fluke but I certainly could find no parking and no clearly public way to access the area at 8am
