great paved trail by the water

One trail going parallel to the waterfall was closed for safety reasons but the other trails were available. Did the trail marked with blue circles and had a nice time. A good incline in the beginning but evens out to an easy walk.

Nice trail to get away for a little. Weirdly paved at one section though

I hiked this as a 2.5 mile loop. The trails are not well marked and I missed one section I couldn’t find. Still a nice quiet hike. Saw one homeless tent set up.

It’s surrounded by busy roads and businesses, but it’s a nice, flat park to walk around with street parking, kids playground, pond, benches and usually some local art sculptures. I think roughly 3x around the outermost loop is roughly a mile. It’s good as a leisurely walk or jog around a park with paved paths.

It was alright for a local after work hike. Nice rocks, mud and flowing water just as I prefer it. Most of the trail was intertwined with houses and roadways which is not my preference. There where tents set up by the local homeless population and a woman asked me for spare change. I’ll give Worcester an “A” for effort on this one.

Nice trail, moderately trafficked. Steep part in the beginning then more gradual. The water feature is at the start of the loop and you have to scoot off the trail to get a good view. Otherwise it’s just woods. Great for kids!

Great easy hike. Steep in the beginning then levels out. Loops around. My 3YO walked the whole thing. It wasn’t muddy but was a bit buggy.

Great trail for families/dogs. We went on this hike with two dogs and a 10 year old. Spotted clear streams and a small water fall. The trail has moderate terrain and was lightly trafficked. A nice hybrid hike that includes woods as well as urban settings. This trail brought us through Green Hill park and East park. We took a detour and visited The Dogfather food truck parked at Green Hill. Would recommend this trail to a friend, fantastic behind the scene views of the city.

A nice trail that manages to snake it way through Worcester with minimal interaction with streets and city. I came across a few homeless tents along the trail, but they leave you alone if you leave them alone. Hiked first half from Eastside Park to Green Hill Park and back. Then hiked the other half from Green Hill Park to Lake Quinsigammond and back a different day. Each was a nice hike in the afternoon.

It would have been rated better but so much trash and debris when you start. The trail needs some attention. Well marked.

Very easy trail, but fun for everyone. Can be very muddy at times.

Short hike, steep at the beginning just enough to get your heart pumping. Muddy in places, great for dogs. Pretty view of the waterfall. Could be longer if combined with other trails.

After reading the other reviews on this trail I had to check it out. All I can say is I saw no evidence of ghosts, aliens, mysterious clouds or strange eerie noises. I continue to be impressed with Worcester’s conservation areas. Maybe later in the season it will be different but I don’t think so. I’ll come back and if you are in this area give it a hike.

Haven’t actually done the trail yet. Can anyone explain where the trail head is? Drove up there today and I see where you park but no trail head and no signs.

If you are interested in local historical ruins there are plenty here. It’s not a quiet place but still quite peaceful.
