Parked at the Pond Street gate. Nice loop road and trail option around all four bodies of water: Brockton Reservoir, Waldo Lake, Porter Pond, and 30-Acre Pond. I did the reservoir and Waldo Lake loop today.
Started clockwise and continued across South Street to far end of Waldo Pond and the spillway. Continued back on west side back to the north and the parking area. This is a nice biking option too.

Nice walk. Parking available just about anywhere. Plenty of hills.

Beautiful road through islands and beaches.

Beautiful place that you can visit multiple times and find new beautiful views each time. The biggest highlight would be the lookout tower and the lakes.

I would say the best time to go is in the fall because of the foliage.

beautiful walk and loved the tower and view of Boston

Beautiful flowering trees & well kept up landscaping. Also saw bunnies, frogs, turtles, cardinals, hawk & robins. Gorgeous & peaceful.

Incredibly beautiful garden cemetery with multiple trail loops. You could spend all day walking here enjoying landscaping, bunnies, birds, sculpture, history. One of my favorite things to do in Boston.

Just like the Mohawks of hundreds of years ago, this is a great passage from Boston to the New York border. Meandering along the Deerfield River is bucolic. A wonderful stop is in North Adams at Mass MoCA. And then stop in for a nosh in Williamstown and stop by the Clark Museum of Art.

As a child growing up in New England I always fall back to this area. It has beautiful sites and hiking trails. I have done the loop several times already as a kid and as an adult. It has also a lot of history behind as well. The Mohawk Trail in the early days was a trading route where pioneers traded fur for goods. A lot of other history as well. Great place to visit especially in the Fall.

This is the first scenic drive I can remember from childhood. And over the years I still love it as much as my grandparents did when they shared this beautiful ride. There is history, art, culture, shopping, tourist stuff and most of all, beautiful scenery.

This famous, classic route is beautiful at any time of year. During fall foliage, it is stunning! Literally! I've seen people get their first exposure to New England foliage along this road, and watched them stare, open-mouthed. Do not miss this route if you can get there.
