I have been to the Swope Trails more times than I can count. Most people only hike to the view point but there is so much more than that. There are miles of trails for you to explore. It's a great trail to run your dog on and if you do down the splinter trails there are streams and a pond for them to cool off in. Overall some of the best trails in Concord and it's only about a ten minute drive from downtown Concord.

Very well marked and easy hike. National Audubon Society is right there with educational birds of prey, so nice way to finish off the hike with the kids.

Very quick and easy trail. The views are beautiful!!

Fantastic view in such a short hike! Love the short mountainous trail, got a decent workout in some gorgeous forest. I got lost and walked in circles, but I still don't know how as the looping trails are pretty well marked. Definitely user error. I ended up wandering around happily for at least a couple of hours while stopping to stare at the view for quite a long time; no bugs there!

Nice easy walk through well-maintained trails and lovely woods. Pretty marsh views. the ~1.2 mile yellow dot trail took less than 45 minutes.

the trails are well marked, some nice short trails and one long one

A hidden gem 15 minutes from Laudon Rd. Many connector trails, most recently they added a connector to Winant Park.

Nice little walk. Saw some frogs. Good for kids or just something to do.

Got a little lost! came out down the road from our car!!

My kids and myself really enjoyed it here. Trails are marked very well and the maps were frequent. My kids loved the teepees and the tree house. Lots of roots were my only concern but my little guy who is 2 held my hand often and all was well.

I hike all the trails at oak hill a few times a wk. The side trails are much more quiet than the tower trail. People are very friendly and it's a very dog friendly place. I see most dogs of leash, they are all friendly. I love all the trails.

We've done the Tower trail to the fire tower and decided to hit some of the lower trails. There are a lot of turns and trails that you can take to vary this up a lot to make it different each time. Good views from the vista in this area and some nice climbs on the Murray Bluff trail.
