Can get somewhat busy on a nice day, but very nice and easy trail for a shorter day walk. There’s a mailbox on the top with a notebook and I always liked that little touch.

Nice for a quick mostly level walk outside. You can double the length by continuing on the alternate trail. Great for young kids too

Wet/ icy hike. Definitely wear crampons if you’re hiking during the winter. It’s a nice long hike with steady inclines. Very enjoyable.

Great for dogs!

Did this today Jan 18. Very Icy and snow on top of Everett. About four inches. Didn’t go to Race but a tough and challenging hike none the less. Note to self: this time of year bring crampons.

Good hike close to the city. Great workout!

icy at times, had to stay left or right of trail. had to go slow. alaways a fun hike.

Le plus beau circuit est le jaune, avec une vue de Boston à son sommet et un étang avec petite chute.

On a sunny day this loop around the reservoir is unmatched. You follow a gravel road, so it’s tick free and easy walking. Moderate use in the summer not much in the winter. It’s gentle up-and-down. I wish there were more trails like it. One of my very favorites. in terrain, beauty and length.

beautiful fields and woods to walk through. Really loved it.

Beautiful water views. Perfect walking area for a dog.

Honestly, I have driven by this area my entire life and today was the first day I have actually hiked it with my dog. I did the blue trail and it was beautiful. Well maintained and walking around the pond area was beautiful even in January. Will be going back to try the white trail.

This was a good short hike. Markings are clear along the trail, however, some of them can be pretty fairly spaced apart so just be aware - I went off trail a couple of times but didn’t get turned around too bad.

the little glacier waterfall give a good surprised.

Great quick hike beautiful waterfall. There was a dusting of snow there today

Beautiful

Nice quick hike with beautiful views of the valley.

Really great trail. I have run a lot of trails in the area and this is one of the better ones. Combined this with Betsys Neck for a great long run.

Not sure where you are supposed to park, we definitely just made it up. other than that trail was nice, well marked and varying levels of elevation to keep it interesting. we had fun, walked with small dog who loved it.

Nice trek, even in winter. Some ice but plenty of rocks and roots to keep traction. The Pine Hill Trail up was great and is a work of art!! Wish I had some skis for the way down.

Great views. Short steep ascent, but would rate this more intermediate than hard.

Both roads to this trail are either closed or not maintained in the winter(Dec-May). Beware. I plan to go back in the spring time when the road looks better.

Parking for 1 car across from trailhead (see cairn). Nice trail up east side of hill then down west side. Quite pleasant. Came around on dirt road by old windmill driven pump house with well. Returned via the main road. Property is Massachusetts state land donated by Miss Susan Minns (1926) and operated as a wildlife sanctuary. NOTE ON MISS MINNS: At the time of her death Susan was the oldest living female graduate of M I T (98Y.O.). She was one of the very first women to study there. She later donated to M I T 20,000 feet of land for the construction of a laboratory to study river flow hydraulics. She donated Little Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, MA to the Commonwealth, as a bird sanctuary.

Plenty of secondary trails to keep it interesting time after time.

Good hiking or biking area,connected large and small loops.

Have been here a few times. Always a great walk/hike. My dog loves it too!

The trail and surrounding woods was free of brush. Very enjoyable walk, fantastic older trees and rolling hills Highly recommended. As others have noted bring your GPS as the trail at times isn’t well marked

amazing scenic view when you make it to the top
