Lovely trail. Make sure your dog is on a leash though, as you will run into a lot of joggers. Very scenic and peaceful.

We hiked this at the end of May and found the trail wonderful. The beginning was very slightly muddy but dry for the most part. Azeleas, some star flowers, False lily of the valley, wild geraniums, cherry trees and the blueberries were blooming. We even saw a trillium. The path was flat in a few places but for the most part was a steady incline it was well marked until the summit. The views were spectacular. As noted by another reviewer, make sure to go to both sides to see both the views over Williamsburg and North Adams! Moderate hike.

The road that the google maps directions took us was just completely mud and my car ended up getting stuck in the mud for over an hour. Make sure you have a big car or find better directions because we couldn’t even make it to the falls!!!

Great hike! Happy Memorial Day!

Didn't go the entire trail, but I've been going to Crane's Beach since I was a toddler. Always enjoyed splashing in the water and digging my toes in the sand!

Pretty easy trail with good views of the Blackstone River.

As you may guess, a place with "Arboretum" in its name is a great place to see flowers. The northern part of this loop has a number of nicely landscaped areas, and throughout the rest, there are a number of wildflowers. There is even a path called "Wildflower Path", but it's not included on the suggested hike (the yellow loop). There are lots of birds in the area. I encountered one birder who was looking for warblers on my hike today. For me, the most interesting part of this is the aluminum boardwalk that crosses the bog in the far southern area. There were a lot of frogs making very interesting sounds. I didn't see any pitcher plants today, but the signs there say that they exist. So maybe they'll be up in another week or two. In the far Southeast corner (the part that is parallel with Minot Ave), there is a long wooden boardwalk that seems to be "closed", at least according to the signage at both ends of it. The signs say that it will be closed "starting on May 4" for some rework, and to use alternate paths. It is now May 24, and the signs are still there. It seems that the boardwalk is still in working order, so I did use it today, and just stepped over the signs. The mud right before and after this boardwalk is probably more than they would like, so maybe it is being extended, I'm not really sure. There are a lot of dogs at this location, so if you prefer not to deal with them, then it may not be the best choice. Other than that, it's a great place for a short little hike. For those with strollers, I think you can do the entire top part of this hike with a stroller. The bottom part is a tighter trail and has lots of roots, but most of the top part is paved, or at least very flat.

Great little hike. The pond is beautiful. I saw two beavers! The trail is not challenging but has some incline.

Beautifully maintained trails and views of the Charles. The dogs aren't allowed inside of the gardens, so we stayed on the perimeter and completed 2.1 miles.

I am a little bias since this hike is so close to home, but there's so many reasons to keep coming back. there are so many trails to chose from which are all along the challenging to easy spectrum. always pretty, always worth it.

this is a very easy trail my old butt can do it so can yours. my dog enjoyed the trail as well it's not to hard and he carried all our water and snacks.

Great day ,

There’s something magical about this place with its wildlife and it’s wild flowers and amazing views. I came here last year to remember my brother in his birthday, and this year again. The trails are clean and clearly marked. There’s quite a incline for a lot of the trail and some minor rocky areas. I’d recommend this place to anymore

Tough telephone line trail as always reminds me how out of shape I am but I love it every time

Quiet trail, but saw a few tied bags appearing to be dog doodoo! Sad reality peeps don't care about environment.

AllTrails has a bad plan for this trail. The indicated trail head is down a heavily rutted dirt road, and I heard from a police officer in the town that the people living on that road can be trouble. What AllTrails shows as the bottom mid point at the end of the dike of this out-and-back trail is actually where you have proper road access and parking, also a porta potty. Right now the area is teaming with gnats. Deep Woods Off kills them but doesn't repel them. It was a breezy day, which helped a lot. Something else to note is that according to park rangers there are an estimated 20 black bears around Quabbin. When unwanted bears are removed from towns in Mass, this is where they take them. Bear scat was visible on the trail. As somebody noted this is really just an access road. Maybe more interesting to history buffs because sometimes you see residue of the old communities that were displaced. Mountain bikers take note. Some areas of this route quickly turn into erosion gullies. The police had to do an emergency rescue of a biker last year who busted themselves up. There aren't really any nice places to hang out and enjoy a view until you get to the dike. It's a shame, because there is a lot of potential that hasn't been realized.

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.

There is a lot to see along this trail. I had originally expected to do a lot of trail running, but only about half of this is along the main trails (which are good for running). The other trails are more hilly, have lots of tight turns, and have lots of roots and rocks. The mosquitoes were completely out of control. Even with bugspray, I couldn't keep them off of me, especially the area that is closest to the river. When I was by the river, I was able to hear ultralight aircraft taking off from the nearby airfield. This really seemed a bit out of place, because other than the airfield, you area extremely far from any other civilization. Of course ultralights don't make much noise, so it didn't detract from the hike at all, I just found it interesting. On the river, I saw a couple people canoeing, and a couple swans. If the bugs weren't so bad, I can imagine some people enjoying just sitting watching the river for an hour.

Very fun, very easy trail. Has some bigger hills and a rocky terrain but mostly flat. There’s a building overlooking a lake that’s great to get a view of the whole area.

It's a fun and interesting trail through-the-woods. There aren't any scenic overlooks, but there are great views of the Mill River!

Great day for riding today. Trails were clean and well kept.
