Sorry to say, this trail is NOT good. The entrance is somewhere in a school complex, it’s unmarked. When I finally fount the trail head, the actual trail was hard to find. Followed tall yellow gas line markers, they ended in brush. Then followed trail on my phone, ended up at a private driveway, dead end. This trail is UNMARKED ! Disappointed I followed road back to my car.
This trail concerns me because it’s long 7+ miles, if you manage to go deeper into this trail than I managed to, you could get badly lost.
I would not recommend this trail.

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.

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.

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

Awesome trail through beautiful woods and meadows, great place to enjoy wildlife and nature.

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.

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
