I love the trails in this reservation! Nice views of the surrounding hills and a bit of Boston from the top. Good for taking the dog out of the city and off-leash.

Nice loop on a great day. The little pond up on the north side is really nice and extends your hike. Soon I'd think the little bombino's will be at camp so it might be tricky running thru the beach areas unless your out early. Enjoy!

Nice loop and property!

Went for a 4 mike hike around the trails of Cat Rock on Hale Reservation. Only recorded the beginning 1.5 miles around the area for Cat Rock. Then I detoured straight for Noanet Pond and enjoyed the picnic bench by the water. I took the paved path down and back around the reservation. It was snowy and quiet on this off-season day. Multiple options for windy paths, or paved paths. Beautiful lake and interesting features to look at.

Entered Noanet from the trailhead at the end of Cedar Hill Road. Worked my way up to Noanet Peak then did some bushwacking down and around back to where I started. Trees down everywhere as we had a huge storm yesterday. A nice loop, give it a try.

A little known section of Hale reservation south of Powisset Street. Initial trail boarders the west side of the Dover Transfer Station. This is a popular spot for a few local mountain bike enthusiasts. Good stuff for trail runners. Lots of roots, rocks, and ledges. The first ledge you encounter, kind of a side path to get there actually, is magnificent. This is a real treat, enjoy!

Nice town conservation area near Dover center. I rarely see people in here, it's a nice property. I did a quick loop using the AT app as I've gotten lost in here before. A bit sketchy about half way thru as you come upon abandoned cars and a home. Not sure who lives in there, you're in the middle of the woods but there is a dirt road connecting with Farm Road ( I think ). Just kept running around the loop I created knowing the pancakes were cooking at home! A nice property, will be back.

A nice little trek turned into a 5+ mile loop through Hale Reservation. I've never been to Cat Rock so thought I'd check that out. Pretty cool ledge in the heart of the Reservation. Plenty of alternative ways to do this hike/trail run. Enjoy!

I've been running through these woods for 20 years and only discovered Strawberry Hill recently via this app. A cool little hill with a very nice trail and plenty of ledges along the way. Drop down to the Pond and do a loop there if you want, or jump in! You can combine this with a trek up Powisset Peak too. A great property!

Took a nice trail run through Noanet then around to Strawberry Hill. There is a way up Strawberry Hill but I passed on that today. Continued south and back to Powisset Peak which is a wonderful little rock ledge with great views north and of Noanet Peak in the distance. This is a nice little trail run.
