The Fresh Pond Reservation Loop was a nice walk on a beautiful day. It was good to experience a more secluded area in Cambridge and there were plenty of people utilizing the trail, although it was not crowded. Around 85-90% of the trail is paved.

One great view of Boston after a quick rock scramble. Otherwise the hike was wooded with a few small ponds. I skipped several sections of the trail due to time constraints and lack of interest in climbing all the little rocks. I also skipped the beginning/end because I parked at the ice rink parking lot. Difficult to follow the mapped out loop because the blazes change and many offshoots aren't clearly marked. Could hear road noise for over half the hike. Took me about 2 hours.

Not too challenging, fantastic views at the top!
