Trail was very quiet when I went. The falls though are a very pretty sight.

It’s not a bad walk, but it’s right next to the highway, so it gets noisy at times. From Millbury to the end in Worcester is a little over 2.5 miles each way. It looks like they are planning on expanding the the trail soon.

Go to this trail on a rainy day and admire the waterfall!

Great system of trails to wander around! Used to be my favorite trail running spot in the city. Also a great destination for birding.

really enjoyed this hike. we went to go see the falls after a day in the city. I was looking for a short hike but as we started to get into it we kept on expanding upon the loop until it was about 3.5miles until we got back to the car. we didn't even realize we had been out that long, the most trecherous part was at the beginning climbing up along the fall. got to say some beautiful nature, had a red tailed hawk land within feet of me and find it's dinner!

my only caution is watch for the path coming back from the paved driveway towards the falls (I forget the name). we went in where it was marked but they apparently moved the path off to our left, never saw the entrance just went in where the app told is (and was marked as a trailhead). after traversing some brush and briars we finally located the path and hopped back on, saw a sign later saying the path was moved!

great gem hidden in the outskirts of Worcester!

Great place to warm up for the hiking season. Get lucky and you could see some beavers, no real fantastic views otherwise.

Revisited this trail today. Explored connecting trail from the school parking lot and nearby track. Basically every running surface you could ask for (except sand) is right here. Long gradual climb (or decent) on Goddard is convenient bailout.

So happy to find a trail run close enough to my local gym. Little bit of everything (for good trail running practice) in this tucked away space right out in the open. You won't find yourself secluded from the city here, but you won't get lost either.

It is great for a short stroll while staying close to the city.

Short and to the point, too residential for my taste

Gets a little technical in a few spots, but was a nice jog

Four stars for a nice, short walk-hike w dog/baby and some decent uphill for Mass. Not five stars bc of the bugs.

It's very nice Sanctuary for the Audubon, well taken care of trails & good maps provided by them. Most of the trails anyone could handle, but there are some more difficult.

pretty, easy trail with a bit of an uphill, limited parking, but overall a nice walk in the woods!

It's a good little hike, lot of bugs though. Welcome to nature I guess

Pretty hike. Trail needs some tlc but still walkable. Some broken glass. Bring your bug spray

Basic but a good spot to just do a quick loop or two.

Pretty trails, one big incline at the beginning and then the rest was pleasant downhills.

This trail far surpassed my expectations. Simply beautiful

Quiet and serene, but protect against deer ticks. Also, it smells of human sewage in places.
