Walked the loop with my hiking friend. Such a beautiful area. Quiet, sunny, and wide open. Sparkling water, on all sides. One strip of land laid out on the water as a miniature replica of the key west 7 mile bridge. Such a great place- makes you feel lost from the world.

Been here only once, did not complete the trail. Where is the best place to park. I found a spot, but did not want to stay there long, there is no street parking is there?

Not too hard.

Nice hike, kinda crowded.

Nice loop and property!

Love the snow

great trail, parking is hard to find, you can see the commuter rail train coming and going during the hike.

Really great hike. Packed snow, trail broken in. Some icy spots, but did great with poles and crampons. Good training for New Hampshire!

Great hike. Don't let the fact that it's in eastern Mass fool you. The round trip hike is all up and down and is more strenuous than you think.

Great views, nice walk with various different types of scenery.

Great workout. beautiful views.

Nice winter snowy walk.

Went for a 4 mike hike around the trails of Cat Rock on Hale Reservation. Only recorded the beginning 1.5 miles around the area for Cat Rock. Then I detoured straight for Noanet Pond and enjoyed the picnic bench by the water. I took the paved path down and back around the reservation. It was snowy and quiet on this off-season day. Multiple options for windy paths, or paved paths. Beautiful lake and interesting features to look at.

Running trail... excellent place to relax and right on the road so easy access

Entered Noanet from the trailhead at the end of Cedar Hill Road. Worked my way up to Noanet Peak then did some bushwacking down and around back to where I started. Trees down everywhere as we had a huge storm yesterday. A nice loop, give it a try.

A great place for a hike on your lunch break.

Great hike with options to expand or shorten. Got a little lost and turned around, but kept heading in the general direction of the trail on the map and eventually, made my way back to the trail and cut through a few different trails because i was lost for a while. Very wet and muddy in places and completely washed out in others due to the recent rain storm. I would definitely hike out there again, but maybe explore the well marked trails in the north side...

nice run but difficult to navigate

nice walk around the lake. very good marked with yellow signs

Not a bad place to walk around. I did some snowshoeing on the river when it froze over but, overall the place needs some TLC.

Fun easy walking trails. Bring waterproof boots if you go anywhere up a week after a rainstorm

A decent beginners trail. The first half is a gradual up hill walk, then to the fall. Fall are very relaxing, best seen march - may after rain.. the walk back is very easy and all downhill... 1.9 miles round trip.

Not marked well. Lots of hills and rocks. Not as easy as everyone says.

I was going to praise the trail for its beauty, but when I was almost finished with the loop, the trail came abruptly to an end and I had to turn around and hike the whole way back at the end of the day when it was getting dark and I was out of energy. Plus the second half of the loop is not marked at all. The parts that are marked are not all on this map and I had to constantly refer to this app to figure out where I was. That didn’t help a lot and almost got me lost!

March 4th 2018: This was a beautiful trail, an easy 5 miles. Some elevation at times. Beautiful views of the water. Currently the boardwalk into the water is damaged from the recent storm, and in many areas of the trail there are newly fallen trees. On the last mile of the trail around the pond the entrance is blocked by a giant cluster of fallen trees. I chose to walk on the main road and into the nearby neighborhood to gain access back to rest of the trail. I suspect as the warmest weather approaches the town will make the necessary upkeep from the off season. Highly recommend and would return to despite the current damage.

This is one of the many very nice parks in New Bedford. The walk is around the perimeter of the park, pond, zoo, ball fields, and woods. Very busy traffic on the roads adjacent to the park. Accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.
