A nice set of trails through pine forest, as the name implies. The trails are pretty lightly trafficked so this makes a good spot for nature trips. The prescribed loop is very short, but there are plenty trails in the area that could be used for a longer loop. Definitely bring bug spray if you are going any time soon, I had bugs around my head the whole time.

Descent loop if you’re looking for exercise, but not a lot to see here. The trail only follows the pond for a short section, other than that it’s pretty uneventful. Towards the end (or beginning for some), you have to cross a parking lot and walk on the road for a while. Near the parking lot there is a lot of interesting sculptures to check out. All in all it was a good loop, but not my favorite.

An easy enough hike through a pleasant area. We combined it with Mount Misery and continued on to the Walden Pond and hiked back to Lincoln through Pine Hill and Woods End. Saw a Pileated Woodpecker.

A short, easy hike through a pleasant forest with not many people around. Don't expect any views from the top and you won't be disappointed.

This trek is around Flint's Pond, Walden Ponds big sister (in size, not stature!). I parked on a tiny pull-out which works but it looks like there is better parking at the landing just down the road. A nice loop for sure. The Town of Lincoln is picky about going too close to their drinking water (this is a reservoir) but, other than that, and knowing Henry likely walked in these woods too, YOU GOTTA DO THIS!

Very serene hike. You start off in a farm field and then stroll through a deep hemlock forest. Very beautiful hike but not super challenging. A good spot to go to get some piece of mind. Not as crowded as Walden you’ll mostly find folks walking their dogs.

Used to Mountainous trails and the doggy loves it

Fun trail with a lot to see, when you walk through the Mount Misery area you’ll notice how open the forest is, especially for southern New England. I would recommend taking a little excursion to the top of Mount Misery rather than around it. There’s an old cabin foundation on top with unknown history. Later on you’ll pass deep glacial kettle holes with wetlands at the bottom and you’ll see the Sudbury River. When I went there were a bunch of dogs playing in the water. This might be a good hike to bring your pets on. The loop portion of the trail is fairly uneventful. If you want a big hike you can continue on past where this map tells you to turn around, and loop around Walden Pond. This would add a few more miles to your trip.

Nice relaxing hike with soft ground and access to Decordova grounds

Easy to access from S. Great Rd, nice wide trail. A little effort upfront, then it's mostly flat - I'd probably say it's closer to 'easy' than 'moderate'. Markings were disappointing though. From the S. Great Rd. starting point, I didn't see a welcome board or maps anywhere, so I just winged it, choosing the red markers over the yellow, having no clue. Ultimately, I crossed the big farm - which is an awesome break - but just turned around from there.

The kids liked it. We enjoyed the woods and kettle holes when away from the noise of rt 117. A very brief overlook of the Sudbury River so the name of the hike is a little misleading. Every other person we saw was also with a dog (some on leash, some not). Trails were adequately marked with colors and names. We used the map on this app to choose our path and found our way easily. Paths were obvious and apart from one short stretch were dry and passable. Mosquitos were out. Parking rotated quickly.

Varied from forest to field and crossing several roads with some hills. Poorly marked trails

Fairly monotonous trail around a lake. Trail mostly covered by leaves, no great views of the lake. Best thing about this trail is it passes through lathe Decordova Museum.

Fairly easy trail but very scenic and beautiful... Plus you get the extra bonus of the amazing sculptures at Decordova. My only issues were the lack of trail markers (although it was fairly easy to navigate many were ripped down or hard to find) and you cannot bring dogs. What is hiking without your favorite companion?!

Definitely worth a visit for a easy day hike!
