hiked this on 4/14 with my husband, mother in law, friend and her 3 year old son, and our lab. we missed the turn off so ended up doing it in reverse. it is not marked very well. pretty easy hike. very muddy on this day. very quiet; we saw no one else on the trail but did see others on Paramenter Street. parking is great - we entered Elm Street at Paramenter St in Leominster on GPS and found it easily.
