Beautiful walk! We took a shorter version of the trail which ended up being 3 mike. We took our two dogs (one 8-year-old who is not so fit and one 1-year-old with boundless energy). They both did great. There are plenty of places to take pictures in marshland and with giant boulders. We only saw one other person on the trail. Definitely planning to hike it again and follow up to North Mountain.

Did this trail yesterday, beautiful views and a really nice time. Lots of bugs though so be prepared. Favorite part was that I only saw about 5 other people the whole day.

Tons of signs and blazes, very easy trail to follow, a little steep and rocky in some spots with slippery wet rocks but we are not pros and didn’t have any difficulty. A great way to start up our hiking season, it probably took us about 4 hours with lots of looking around and some lunch. The boulders were awesome to see !

This trail was not well marked but it was a gorgeous hike!

This is actually the 2nd time I walk this trail. It’s easy and if you just want to get out for a walk in the woods it’s perfect! Perfect for dog walkers.

Nice short winter hike. Snowmobile tracks ran the entire trail. We used microspikes as there was still the need for traction. Saw two snowmobilers, but no other folks out that day.

Great Day!

Crisp day. Gorgeous area. Trails not well blazed but easy to see where others have tramped through the woods. Amazing rock areas with numerous climbers that day.

The full loop took 5.5 hours with some resting and a quick lunch. The rest was hiked at a relatively brisk pace. Careful during winter. We started at 1:15 and by 6:30 it was pitch black. Bring headlamps in winter. Went through 2L of water. Many people on this trail, and scenery was nice but nothing to write home about. Would have preferred fewer people. We did this one for the exercise. Great smells abound and silence is soothing during the pockets of time when no one is close by.

You definitely need to take a map with you AND use this map if going up to the summit. We had to reroute at least three times thanks to the app gps!
Also, there isn’t really a “view” at the top... you won’t miss it- it has the rocks sculpture; that’s where the highest point is.
Other than above, it was a great hike!! We and I ur dogs loved it!

Great short hike with kids, plenty of places to fish, plenty of ways to extend the hike with additional trails.

fun, challenging trail! Wear insect repellant. and check the state park map to be sure of which trails you're taking! the trail was well marked and easy to follow.

Lovely trail. The markings were not the greatest, but with my All Trails maps downloaded, I was able to navigate quite easily. Only one real viewpoint, but it was beautiful. We really enjoyed ourselves. Would definitely go again and maybe do even more!

Loved it. Great moderate hike. Beautiful views. Peaceful. Not crowded. Geology was remarkable.

Was an easy trail. Went with the family, good trail to get you started. Lots of bugs. Out and back, was OK

We did a day hike in the area. We started by the beach and went to round pound. Lots of bugs. But it's summer in the woods. We didn't catch any fish even though they were jumping out of the water. There are not many scenic views the way we went. Back and forth took us 5 hours we are not the most athletic people but it is definitely doable for beginners or people with dogs you just need to push yourself!

Great scenery bugs where horrible and the trails are marked with white diamonds but there is little or no signage to tell you where you are. It is beautiful area though.

This is easy with some uphill when starting from the state park road, and mountain trail, and then take round pond to head over to reservation road and from there to several other trails. One fun loop is to head up reservation rd to mountain trail and take the first left for a scramble up a steeper climb, or take the 2nd left for a gentler path to catch a view from south mountain and then head back down mountain trail back to state park road.

Done this loop a bunch of times. It is Fundy/Shaw/Split Rock/Woronoco/Fundy. Early season runoff makes a beautiful waterfall and meditation place on Shaw trail. Interesting and some very large glacial erratics on Split Rock Trail. I get annoyed though at all the miscellaneous back and forth zigzagging of this trail loop. There seems to be no purpose to it other than to make the trail longer. No scenic views or unusual features (other than the glacial erratics). Once you know the loop it can be quite tempting to shorten it.

it was a good hike and some difficult parts of the trail. we entered through fundy and found it hard to follow a route because there were pretty much no directions posted and/or mile markers. the few posted were not helpful at all actual more confusing. it was a 4 hour hike and the only bummer was we couldn't make it to the top because there were no direction.

Great hike close to home.

Una mui buen esperiencia

Did a loop from the park HQ to North Mt and back by adding in a visit to South Mt. Starting trails over North Mt were clearly marked and easy to follow. Trails around the Boulder Trail area had poor signage but good blazes on the trail. Signage from the fire tower was a little poor but in retrospect it should have been obvious. Trail conditions were mixed with plenty of clear trails but a fair amount of ice in spots. Descending off North Mt was fairly treacherous. GPS recorded track showed a 10 mile trip that took just about 4 hours to complete with the last hour after sunset. (firetower sunset view was perfect) Some type of traction is highly recommended. HQ Lot > Mountain Trail >Round Pond Trail > North Mt Trail > Boulder Trail > South Ridge Trail > South Mt > Mountain Trail > HQ .

Great hike. It was mostly flat and not very difficult until the steep climb at the end. 1hr 45min up and an 1hr 20min on the way down. Great for leaf peeping this time a year.

Fun trip up the mountain, but was very confusing getting back to the car. Need to increase the amount of signs to make it easier to find the way back down

Great hike and great views.

The Boulder field is pretty cool, lots to see. On the top of the north peak there is a large green metal marker used by WWII bomber pilots returning from Europe for navigation.

LOVED this hike/nature walk!! So many trails to make it as short or as long as you want. We did ten miles that were quite easy. Just beautiful forests, picturesque ponds, and amazing boulders! Such a great day!! Definitely will do it again!!!

This was a fun, quick hike. Maybe an hour round trip. Just a handful of people on the trail. People bouldering in a few places once you reach the boulder field.
