Great Hiking & Skiing

This place is wonderful for all seasons. You can buy a state park pass for $30 & uses it for every park in Ma. My only complaint is they don't let you hike on most of the trails in the winter because they groom trails for skiing. But they do run a snowmobile on the walking trails which makes it... More

Visiting March 4th during a weekday there was still quite a bit of snow. The staff were helpful, the Ski trails are well groomed and varying in abilities. As intermediate skiiers, we really enjoyed skiing here. We are planning to go back to night ski; we were informed that there is a Lantern Loop that is lite in the evening... More

We take our dogs here for hikes (and sometimes hike on our own). The park is large, has a variety of terrains, and in the summer the ice cream place is open (Tasty but pricey!). I feel lucky to live near Great Brook Farm!

If you are visiting around here, you are likely seeing family, riding a bike, or a history buff. It's not an out-of-towner destination, but definitely a nice place to visit if you are in the area already. If you live near here, you should have been here already! Here is why Miles and miles of trails, some used by hikers,... More

We come with our three year old often. Great Brook has many trails, a large grassy area with picnic tables, a pond with fish and frogs to watch, and clean restrooms on site. Best of all, though, is the on site dairy farm complete with delicious homemade ice cream! There are rabbits, cows, chickens, goats and pigs to look at... More

I wasn't overly impressed with Great Brook Farm. It was a bit of a wet day but my partner and I and our Basenji were hopeful that we'd find some great trails. We found a ton of aggressive mosquitoes that plagued us for the entire walk. Not fun at all. We did two trails and were not that impressed. There... More

I love the variety of trails and the ice cream for post-walk treat! We head over here any time we want to go for a walk... One of our regular choices for a family outing.

this is a great place with miles of trails. Be aware that on weekend after new snow fall it can be extremely crowded- not really a problem if you take to the more advanced woodland trails- but it can be a challenge in the parking lot from mid morning to say 3 pm. Lantern night skiing available. Personally if you... More

With almost 1000 acres of conservation land, Great Brook State Park is a terrific destination for families or individuals looking to get away from the hustle & bustle of the city. There are countless wooded paths to explore on foot or on mountain bike, and it's a dog-friendly place for the most part. Bring your bug spray, as the mosquitoes... More

Great place to go on a nice day with your family. There are easy walking trails, a little pond, ice cream stand (very good ice cream) Tours are well worth doing with kids - you get to see the cows being milked, see the babies/calves and learn about a working farm. Be warned, do not stand behind the cows or... More
