A great wall on a brisk spring day, followed the main path to the beach, then followed it almost to the Jamestown bridge. A little muddy but there were a decent amount of people and dogs enjoying the weather, heading back next week with some trashbags to clean up a few areas of the beach were trash piles up. 4/5

Loved running here!!! Peaceful with some really impressive overlooks and fun climbs. Would be lovely in the fall.

I’m having a hard time finding the trail when I use maps it takes me to an old road but I can’t find the trail.

Trail to the beach was very muddy. Snow made it difficult, but as soon as we hit the beach...Beautiful! My son and I had a wonderful time exploring.

Beautiful! Variety of things to see...waterfall, beach, spruce row. Trails are well marked. Very quiet.

My humans took me to do this trail today. The first half of this trail was absolutely beautiful and well marked with white trailblazes. At the peak there are four man-made rock chairs which provide for a wonderful photo opportunity. Once you cross over 165 and approach what would be about the 4 mile mark you intersect with the North South Trail. These trails are marked with blue blazes. The white blazes end and there is no information to provide as to which way one should go to continue on the Mount Tom trail. We followed The blue markers heading south on the north-south trail.. Once you come out to a dirt road there is zero markings left for one to follow unless if you stay on the road (blue markers to left). According to the AllTrails map this is the wrong direction. From this point on regardless of which way you travel there are no markings anywhere. Hence, you really have no idea where you’re going other than if you’re all trails guide is telling you you are on the right path. I would not recommend this hike to anyone without having an AllTrails map. Definitely going to communicate with the Arcadia management team and inform them that the Lack of appropriate markings and information is out right dangerous for novice hikers. Other than that we had an absolutely beautiful hike. Wear shoes that are appropriate for wet muddy conditions.

Dogs running loose again !!!!! The caretakers of this preserve need to stop the people with dogs in these woods. Every time I walk this property there are dogs running around loose and creating stress on the wildlife there . It’s a dam shame !!!!!!

I've hiked this trail and hunted the area many times. Neat landscape well marked trails, many free running dogs.

Pretty wet hiking after all the rain we've had lately. Lots of low, wet spots, but an easy walk with nice scenery. Watch out for the prickly vines, though!

To all of you people that walk their dogs in wildlife areas ,,,, LEASH YOUR DOG !!!!!!!!!!

This trail constantly has dogs running loose by they’re owners . The dogs running loose end up pushing deer and other animals out of an area that they use to feel safe in . Dogs should not be allowed in wildlife areas . That patch of woods used to be teeming with wildlife, now they’ve been dislocated so people can enjoy the woods!

Nice trail. Rocky. Dogs are allowed with leash. Great view of Jamestown bridge. The beach section (0.25 mile section) was full of shells which was hard on the pups paws. Last mile of trail is narrow, but overall nice trail.

Trail was not clear when we reached the dirt road. I agree that “ easy” rating would be an issue for anyone not in shape for climbing.

Its a beautiful trail and a decent hike, but I couldnt get over the traffic im the background, logging roads, garbage truck went by on a dirt road. All that noise ruined the secluded feel for me.

I hiked this trail for the first time yesterday, early in the morning before it got too hot. The only disappointing thing was that because we've had so little rain, there was no water to be seen other than the lake - no waterfalls or streams, even though the trails and undergrowth are damp. Lots of fungi to photograph, if you like that sort of thing (like I do!). I'll try it at a different time of year when it's a little wetter. Other than that, it's a lovely place. Really loved the "hall" of spruce trees! The trails are well marked. It's a nice non-strenuous hike in a beautiful spot.

The trails are typically marked clearly and are kept in good condition. People with dogs should know that many people walk their dogs off leash so just plan accordingly.

Fun hike through varied terrain. Long grass on both sides of the trail meant Long pants and sleeves were needed.

Nice short gravel walk down a path to a sandy beach. It's 1.1 miles if you also walk the entire length of the beach.

Well maintained. Decent amount of traffic. Great views along the coast.

Clearly marked trails with maps posted. A nice short loop with well packed trail, many tree roots and rocks, although not technical overall. Remained shaded most of the run and few deer flies despite their prevalence nearby in swampy areas.

Very pretty and shady on a hot day. The back of the yellow trail is narrow and a little confusing in spots where blaze is sometimes two yellow and sometimes one yellow. Worth wearing boots if it’s been raining or if you tend to roll an ankle in runners, it’s not always easy to see the roots and rocks because of the overgrowth.

Keep the dogs on leash—there are deer here. Deer Hunting allowed in season, some signs note that dogs are not allowed mid Sept-mid January.

Cut through the woods before the beach if you’re trying to trail run or walk with purpose, I always skip the beach part unless I’m just strolling. The briars get a bit crazy on the back side of the loop but I do enjoy the trail.

Very well marked trails, options for length. Almost completely shaded for majority of path. Leads down to narrow river-I had a great swim. There’s a little spit of sand you could rest and picnic at end. Bathrooms clean, trails well maintained. Can be a tad muddy so be mindful of choosing wisely after a pretty good rain storm. Well trafficked areas, felt safe-lots it dog walkers and happy doggies. Surrounded by lush forestry and ferns. In muddy areas, many pallets constructed and set up to make traversing it easy. No issues with bugs or animals. And parking for at least ten cars! Easy breezy trail.

Hiked this loop on 6/13/2018. Although its a nice hike, there is literally 2 miles worth of knee high grass out of 6.3 miles. It could use some traffic to matt it down!

Did the smaller of the trails and it was a good hike. My husband and I did the trail around the pond. Beautiful scenes, saw the waterfall, and got a decent sweat out of it.

The path was narrows way too much and wasn’t a clear loop. The beach has way too many shells to walk at a good pace.
