Cleaned up a lot of trash. Would love if people started just taking a few pieces with them when they go.

Relatively flat, easy to follow trail. With many intersecting trails, you can easily modify the hike. Despite its length, this is a very easy hike with plenty of shade. Depending on time of year and recent weather a few sections can be very muddy.

Nice trail. Some climbs were not possible on a hard tail. But riding down the big ole rocks was definitely worth it. A nice mix of climb and descent. Very good for a quick-ish ride

This was a fun trail. It was difficult to follow the trail early on, but otherwise it was straightforward. A good balance of rocky climbs and flat stretches to catch your breath. I’d HIGHLY recommend bug spray—I spent a good deal of time swatting at bugs.

80% easy 20% hard, definitely some steep ups and downs, but overall a really nice trail.

Some bugs, decent amount of people. 85% wearing mask and pushing over when you approach. Did the walk in about 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Super fun hike very close to the city, bit rocky at certain points, but still very enjoyable, the views at the top of the city were beautiful, also dog friendly

A beautiful trail with a view. However, heavily trafficked, and as a result, many loose rocks on top of more solid boulders. Slipped on a loose rock (that looked solid) on a steep decline and sprained my knee.

Trails are great. Parking is incredibly difficult on nice days.

Beautiful skyline view of Boston! Trails were well marked and clear. Lots of people enjoying the trails, because they are nice! Parking is going to be a problem though - better get there early on nice days. Or hike the area during cooler times of the year when people aren't at Houghton Pond beach.

The wolcott trail is quiet, easy, and gently sloped for a good portion of it, but the Eliot tower and great hill trails are wayyy too busy.

Great areas definitely hard in beginning. High traffic areas. But takes you to different parking lot.

Great trail to take to the top. Very steep in the beginning but not too difficult. The climb down is easy. Highly recommend deep woods bug spray.

Really nice moderate trail for a quick hike, not too steep with just a couple of challenging rock climbing parts

Great time. Better challenge than I anticipated. Happy trailing !!!!

Great for a quick and easy hike. The trail is very easy to follow and does not contain too many steep inclines. Perfect for dogs as well.

Short easy loop. Very pretty and fairly quiet on a weekday at 8am.
