An easy trail. A hill at the beginning might be moderate, but the rest is easy. The falls at the beginning are nice. No real views other than that, though. Still a nice relaxing hike. I extended it little with a short piece of Silver Spring Trail and Meadow Ridge Trail and those were nice. If I had had more time, I would have done the full trails. There was a little mud, but nothing major. Bugs weren't bad if you kept moving, but we're annoying if you stopped. Overall worthwhile to do if you don't want to travel far from the Worcester area.

Nice trail. Combination of orange and blue trails moderate to easy.

I was there today 5/20 trail was looking great!! Had a great time thanks to everyone that makes this place so great

In mid-May, the trail was beautiful with a swamp and a few fields to view. If you decide to hike this trail during this time of the year, I highly recommend bug spray. The mosquitoes were active, and I removed nearly 40 ticks from my two dogs after getting back home (both dogs were on leash, so I'm glad I didn't set them loose in the field to collect more bug friends). Access to this trail is reached from the back of Piedmont Plastics - drive to the back of the building and you'll see a small path extending from the corner of the lot. You cannot complete the full loop as designated on the AllTrails GPS as part of it is closed for construction. I ended up backtracking on the Crane Swamp Trail and taking the Plantation Trail back to the parking lot. The Plantation Trail was a little overgrown but easily navigable. The puppies and I saw two snakes near the swamp area (both nonvenomous!), so be aware of where you're stepping.

Fun loop. Trail is in pretty good condition considering all the rain we’ve had lately. Very hazy day so we didn’t have much of a view.

Great trail to run on. Spring/Fall you can run any time of day. Summer try to run in the morning, the trail can get covered with gnats. Some wet spots so bring boots or trail running shoes.

This is a paved trail that was mostly used for biking although we walked it. The scenery is beautiful and we will come back when we have more time to walk a greater distance or bring back the bikes.

Flat trail except for 2 short areas of incline. View from the top (overlooking Housatonic) is worth the long walk.

This hike follows well-maintained trails that take you past the reservoir, old stone walls, and beautiful forestland. Mark Traphagen's description and review of the trail is accurate and helpful for those that want to stay true to the GPS per AllTrails. The dogs loved the hike today. It can be a bit buggy (this was in late May) but nonetheless it was very much worth it.

Short, steep and beautiful hill. About 1,000 ft up in a mile.

beautiful place to take a hike. a selfie by the pond is a must and it is a very popular spot lots of people on the trails. you do have to pay for parking unless you have a pass

Trail maintenance is outstanding! Trails on trail app are out of date. Trails are well marked use trail markers instead

Excellent for hikers, bikers, and runners of all levels. The trail is very well marked in a series of easy to find, interconnected trails within the town forest. It’s absolutely lovely! The overall conditions were near perfect, some muddy patches but otherwise well groomed. Because of the low elevation there’s no need for poles.

Pretty cool park. not much to it other than enjoying a nice walk. i did see about 7 little snakes scurrying away from me as i walked through but nothing to intense . unfortunately i couldnt finish it because mother nature cause the swamp to swallow the bridge

Nice easy woodsy hike follows the river. Very tranquil. Breathtaking waterfall.

Beautiful and quiet. Really enjoyed this trail with my puppy. Was a little muddy and buggy today but all in all a nice walk.

Beautiful trail. Sun sets right over the water most seasons. Bit buggy though.

Make sure you hike on the Squaw Peak Trail (red), either from the front or the back side. If you just hike on the Hickey (yellow) and Indian Monument (blue) trails, you won't see any views. Make sure to get a map at the trail head.

Great hike. very crowded on nice weekends.

Fun trail! But I’d extend it into the surrounding trails because there are more waterfalls to see :-)

Just had major renovation including new trail signs, new driveway and new parking. Barn with restrooms and program area and displays open more often. Trails are receiving more boardwalks to help with mud. Several different habitats so different species as well. Muskrat, Otter, deer, and migrating birds of all sorts. Close up views of bluebirds (40+ boxes) and three poles of Purple martins.

The first and largest cascade was beautiful and flowing nicely today. I would recommend also taking the Silver Spring Trail from the Cascade Trail, as there are more tiny waterfalls and cascades to see along this route. The trails were muddy at times but very well maintained.
