Explore the most popular dogs on leash trails near Quincy with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Not mind blowing or remote, but honestly, this is so great considering you're still in metropolitan greater Boston. There is some great elevation change and wonderful views. And 6 miles is 6 miles.

This is an awesome not so trafficked trail, making you feel like you’re hiking in a remote area until you reach one of the small summits and see the city skyline reminding you’re not far from Boston at all.

Beautiful hike! The trail starts just behind the headquarters buildings, and we parked across the street. We finished the whole loop in 2.5 hours, including some time spent at the weather observatory and taking pictures. Elliot Tower is closed for renovations currently, but the weather observatory gives you a view of the skyline for a $3 fee. We completed the loop counter clockwise, but I agree with previous reviews that clockwise is probably more enjoyable, as we had to go down a lot of rocks on the way back. Overall, great way to spend the morning!

Great short hike, brought my dog she loved it. Nice and tuckered out by the end! Would definitely do this tail again.

This was a fun trail, the loop took my friend and I 2 hours and was 3 miles, with only some short stops. It definitely gets your heart pumping, there are quite a few steep ascents with lots of rock, and then you'll steeply descend, it will be flat for a bit, and then another ascent. Not a simple up on the way there and down on the way back, which makes it more fun I think. Unfortunately the Eliot Tower is currently closed for renovations for the fall, so the views weren't great at the top, but still great to be out there!

Very nice hike, moderately difficult there are some steep climbs but overall a very rewarding hike with spectacular views for anyone who is familiar with rocky steep terrain.

A nice rocky clime either way you approach Rattlesnake Hill to the top with a cut out over looking tree tops and a 360 degree view.

Wampatuck Hill is somewhat rocky with a longer clime than Rattlesnake Hill.
