This trail is marked with yellow blazes and has several different names. peaceful and beautiful.

Easy hike. Pretty views. Couldn’t find the path that lead all the way around. But will return.

A great walk. A little elevation to a scenic overlook.

Me and my dog loved the place !

Loved it!!

Great views with minimal effort. Good for families. Lots of dogs. I had one visit from an off-leash wet & muddy dog, but she was cute and owner apologetic.

Easy hiking trail that allows children and dogs. There were too many dogs off their leash that had been in the lake running up to me and sharing their wet bodies, not so good. The lake views are nice and the mountain top view is good.

A few overgrown parts on the old road section. But the single track area were not bad, mostly pine needle covered and a few rocks.

A favorite of mine since I was young. Offers beautiful walks through the woods starting at the old Osgood Estate. You can get close enough to Lake Cochichewick to step in it, then follow the hill up to the top at a bench to get beautiful views of a majority of the lake.

Ward Trail is some paved and clear path. On Vetter watch out for he poison ivy and oak. This time of year lots of flying bugs, so a little deet not bad idea

Easy and well marked trails with long hilltop views and peaceful woods filled with miles of old farmers walls.

More of a dog friendly environment. Other than that nice walk does elevates nice view.

all trails directions took us to a private business parking lot. had to use a different entrance. $5.00 parking fee. pretty pond at the end of a boardwalk through a big at the nature trail.

This is my go-to choice for trail running; it is also a nice easy hike. Lots of elevation changes and nice views. Several muddy spots especially after rain. Lots of people and dogs.

Great Run! Love that it’s a loop, started at the parking lot next to the beach access and went to the left at the trailhead. Left is straight hill for at least a half mile. Got that out of the way and gorgeous views at the top. Went back down and as long as you keep going right and towards the water your good! Lots of rocks, certain spots are just straight flat surfaces though! Only thing is if your running go slow over the wood bridges over the swamp parts. Sturdy but because of where they are and how fast your running they bend! Happy Trail Running

This is one of my favorite places to trail walk. Theres a lot of little streams in spring and many places to explore around the reservation. One of the coolest things to do is to check out the fire tower and solar dial at the top of the hill.

I love this trail. Like others have said, there are some trees that are down, but nothing you can't go over. The trails are marked and easy to follow. Nice scenic views . There are 2 chairs located at Elephant's Rock. It was a nice surprise after some incline. There is a $5 parking fee that you pay with a card.

Beautiful trail. Well marked and easy to follow. There were less than a handful of downed trees in the path but they are very easy to step over. They are doing a great job clearing them away.

Well marked with nice views and one fairly steep climb.

Great trail for all skill levels. Nice views by the lake. Beautiful during fall with the change of leaves. Overall awesome.

Nice walk, quick loop with a pretty view of the resistor. Gets very buggy in the summer from all the water. Great for dogs, not technical at all

Great trail except it got a bit overgrown on the blue trail on the way to Elephant rock, and in some other areas. If it got a bit more attention to clear than this would be 5 stars. Beautiful view clear to Boston from Holt Hill.
