This is a gorgeous place. However it is not very well marked; there are lots of little trails off here and there, and white, blue, and orange markings but not clear on the map... we got crazy terribly lost. Ended up just literally trying to get to a street and walking on the street back to where we parked our car. Internet reception gets iffy in the middle of the woods. Would absolutely love it if we could be confident about where we were/headed when in the woods.

Not too challenging, but uphill for the first half mile or so. Trails are very well marked. Maps along the way. Some traffic.

Not technical mostly flats some ups and some downs. Only come here if your looking for an easy relaxing ride. Not fun for what I was looking for

Trail is extremely well marked and maintained! We had a wonderful walk with our dog and 7 year old daughter.

The trails are ok, but very poorly marked, particularly the one with the red blaze. Decent option if you are looking for something close to the city.

Starting from my home at the Dover side of Pine Street you've got 10 min to bike to the top of Snow Hill then another 10 min to get to the top of Cedar Hill (Rocky Woods) then another 10 min to get to the top of Noanet Peak. I got the first two, have to rethink my way up Noanet. I will add Pegan Hill next and give myself another 10 min to do Quatre Femmes! I'd add Miller Hill but somebody built a mansion up there.

Nice wide and well marked trails. The woods were nice but the view at the peak was nothing special. It was a nice afternoon walk in the woods!

Farm is nice but Trail does not seem to really exist

Well kept trails, great variety of terrain, dotted with ponds. Be sure to take a map! So many trails, you can make it a different hike every time.

Love bringing my dog here. Great place to meet other friendly dogs and walk the trails, let pup swim in the lake

A great day for a hike in the woods. We did 5.5 mile hike and enjoyed the different trails. Some of the rocky inclines were tough to navigate but a fun day for sure!

A nice walk on good long trails. Has decent views of Boston on a rock plateau which I cool, and a cute little waterfall. Not strenuous, and nice that dogs can be off leash. Parking can be a little painful if busy.

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.

New PB today!!! Charlie is scared, won't race me up. I told him we can do it side-by-side, full contact. These elite college rowers, just can't run anymore...

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!

Start at the gate, sprint up to the fire tower, touch the fire tower fence, sprint back down to the gate. See if you can beat my new PB of 10:49. Catch me if you can!

Lots of fun to hike! Great view from top of Noanet Peak. Be sure to bring bug spray though.

Start at the gate, sprint up to the fire tower, touch the fire tower fence, sprint back down to the gate. See if you can beat my time (11:22). My goal is sub 10min., not sure I can get there, we shall see.

Very easy and nice hike through perfectly groomed trails that are well posted throughout. Great hike anytime.

Nice day for a trail run. This is a nice cut-thru option over to the Channing area and Miller Hill area. Still lots of downed branches and trees so be careful.

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.

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.

Loved this hike! Lots of well marked trails with scenic views. The peak view was pretty awesome, especially for such a low altitude, and included the Boston Skyline. There was even a decorated Christmas tree at the top. Sweet surprise.

Great ponds, so pretty and interesting terrain. Doggie heaven. Blue trail is my fav, adding yellow trail for a hike to
The peak.
Take a map, it's easy to get confused with all the trails. Fairly well traveled so no worries

Great property. Went from Caryl Park all the way down to what I call Perkins Cove (first mill pond, site of colonial era wood mill). This is an awesome pond that was full to grade in a driving rain this day (still soothed my soul!). Such a nice spot, one of my favorites in all of Dover (have a seat, relax)! A beautiful erratic on the main trail near Caryl, check it out. Enjoy!

The peak is really nice.

A lot of people,
Not that there’s anything wrong with that...,,,

Nice trail for fall. Beautiful view at the top. Many trails intersecting, so follow the map.

Nice trail if you are in the area and/or looking for dog-friendly hikes. Simple network of well-marked trails, and the peak and pond are lovely spots to sit and enjoy.
