Moderate ascent, not too tough, great views at the summit.

Decent hike. Definitely not 3 miles, made it close to 3 miles due to getting a little lost. Well marked in places, got a little confused around the power lines. It was snowy, but still fun.

great views of saugus river.

This hike is very popular, and for good reason. The Hickey Trail leads to the summit at a moderately steep grade. The Squaw Peak Trail then traverses the ridge, where there are great views of the Berkshires. Descend via the Indian Monument Trail, which is longer and more gradual than the Hickey Trail. My only criticisms are that despite its popularity, there are no restrooms at the bottom, and there are some large cliffs at the top.

Not too hard, great views from the tower on Bear Hill, conveniently located too.

Nice trail and really big area. Plenty of side paths to explore. Took my dog and we walked around for about 5 miles.

Walked the loop with my hiking friend. Such a beautiful area. Quiet, sunny, and wide open. Sparkling water, on all sides. One strip of land laid out on the water as a miniature replica of the key west 7 mile bridge. Such a great place- makes you feel lost from the world.

Been here only once, did not complete the trail. Where is the best place to park. I found a spot, but did not want to stay there long, there is no street parking is there?

Not too hard.

Nice hike, kinda crowded.

Nice loop and property!

Diggin' this rail trail! I grew up in Hudson and even got to watch the building of some of this trail. It's great for a long walk, a jog or bike ride. And it's beautifully scenic as it scrolls along the Assabet River and through the ever-growing downtown Hudson area and into Marlborough. Worth the hike, check it out. (Park in Hudson. No parking reported in Marlborough.)

Love the snow

Really great hike. Packed snow, trail broken in. Some icy spots, but did great with poles and crampons. Good training for New Hampshire!

Great hike. Don't let the fact that it's in eastern Mass fool you. The round trip hike is all up and down and is more strenuous than you think.

Great views, nice walk with various different types of scenery.

A nice little walk along the shoreline of Duxbury Beach Reservation. Snow Owls can sometimes be seen in the winter months. A very cool wooden bridge (0.4 miles long) gets you over to the beach. Enjoy!

Great workout. beautiful views.

Nice winter snowy walk.

Went for a 4 mike hike around the trails of Cat Rock on Hale Reservation. Only recorded the beginning 1.5 miles around the area for Cat Rock. Then I detoured straight for Noanet Pond and enjoyed the picnic bench by the water. I took the paved path down and back around the reservation. It was snowy and quiet on this off-season day. Multiple options for windy paths, or paved paths. Beautiful lake and interesting features to look at.

Decent hike, was looking to do some photography but nothing too astounding

Entered Noanet from the trailhead at the end of Cedar Hill Road. Worked my way up to Noanet Peak then did some bushwacking down and around back to where I started. Trees down everywhere as we had a huge storm yesterday. A nice loop, give it a try.

Nice views of the Berkshire Mountains and foothills, as well as the Deerfield River Valley. Several overlooks and scenic places to admire the views. I’m sure it would be even better in the fall.

Great hike with options to expand or shorten. Got a little lost and turned around, but kept heading in the general direction of the trail on the map and eventually, made my way back to the trail and cut through a few different trails because i was lost for a while. Very wet and muddy in places and completely washed out in others due to the recent rain storm. I would definitely hike out there again, but maybe explore the well marked trails in the north side...

nice run but difficult to navigate

nice walk around the lake. very good marked with yellow signs
