Nice option for a run after a rainy morning and over-night. There is a paved road thru this park which is up, down, and all around with options to veer off into the woods. Standing water on some trails so stuck to the road. Did a quick 5K after a Logan drop-off but then discovered I was trapped in the morning rush hour. No fun getting back home...

I love the upper pond is nice peaceful hiking

Great for a walk with beautiful lake views! ☺️

This is a good easy going trail in the area. Pearce Lake in particular is very scenic especially for sunset in the evening. The upper pond is good for swimming. The whole loop will give you a solid workout and the paved road is a nice touch making it good for family with strollers as well.

Flat trail, nothing special. Wouldn’t go here unless you live really close to it. There are better trails around.

Nice, well marked trail with nice lake views along the Ridgeline Trail. Good rock bounding moments too.

Beautiful hike and lake that you can swim in it during summer.

The swamp at 0.9 mi on this trail was probably an outdated section. They changed the trail, so follow the marking on trees instead of the trail on this map, otherwise you might end up crossing the swamp and get all wet, just like me!

(Or maybe it was because it was raining heavily…)

Ridge trail is a great hike. A lot of uphill climbing and full of challenges.

Enjoyed taking the trails off the paved paths, busy with dogs and families. Poorly marked even with map in hand from visitor center. Hard to believe we were minutes from Route 1.

a good place for a run or walking dog

great views of saugus river.

I hiked the Fox Run Trail and Breakhill Trail. There are many different trails. I suggest getting a map in the visitor's center first; it really gives a great overview of the park. Make sure your legs are ready to climb!

Such a beautiful trail. Love the many options

Fabulous trail feels like another world on and off the trail!

Incredibly beautiful, great views,must go

This is a great spot. The paved trail was perfect for baby strollers, and dog friendly! Can't wait to go explore the unpaved trails!

Very cool place.

Great hike! I would’ve never thought I’d find a quality hike this close to Boston. Ridge Trail is the way to go — especially up to Castle Rock.

Varying trails, marked well.

Overall good trails. We did not do exactly the marked trail and that is b/c it is difficult to follow the trails here as they are not very well marked. Despite that, the trails are well maintained, cross the paved main trail often and make for enjoyable hiking/walking. The main trail is heavily trafficked but the unpaved side trails are more secluded. There are great stretches for off leash time for the pup and great swimming for him as well. Definitely worth coming here again.

I tried a new trail today -Fox run trail -A very pleasant trail that goes up a small
hill and then ends up at a pond. The beauty of Breakheart is that most of the hikers stay on the paved road and very few hikers use the unpaved trails. A very nice spot

This is a great spot .This is 3rd visit. Break heart Hill is an easy climb and you can see great views of Boston. The Saugus River trail is off the beaten path but great little stroll along the river. Plenty of easy paved trails for kids and seniors .

hike and bike options throughout this park. Caught Smallmouth and largemouth bass, and sunfish using lures in the afternoon on Silver Lake.

A nice walk in partial nature, unfortunately a lot of the trails in here are paved over. But when you walk around the lake and get away from the asphalt, it is a very beautiful sight.
