If you want to spend an afternoon out of doors, there is no better place than Noanet Woods. Very picturesque, and most of the trails are easy walking. Don't miss the high spot with a view of downtown Boston. Print out a map (in color) ahead of time or take a picture of the map at the edge of the... More

There are trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback. Dogs allowed but not on all trails. Outhouses at parking lot with maps. Trails not well marked. You can spend an hour or most of the day. And it is free.

Wonderful area in which to walk, cross-country ski, mountain bike (not in spring). My family hikes there several times a year. The trails are varied and well marked, even in the snow. There are hills, ponds, a dam, A great place to spend an afternoon.

We went for a hike here on a beautiful Saturday, and although we had some problems finding it initially, we were very glad we did. You have to enter through Caryl Park, but there is parking for about 40 cars (although this Park is also home to tennis/basketball camps, so if it's a busy time for lessons, etc., the parking...

Marvelous trails for riding, hiking, and dog walking. Not too busy. Limited parking. Take a map -- there are 17 miles of trails and you could get lost (the trail marking is excellent). Recent improvements include marking several loops that are self-contained smaller hikes (say, 2 miles each). Beautiful trees and terrain, large ponds and waterfalls -- you won't believe... More

Located on approx. 600 acres of land the Noanet Woodlands offers 17 miles of trails good for walking, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing. There are 4 trails that have colored markings and are very easy to follow. The trails overlap in some areas so you can go from one trail to another and not get lost. There are the remains of... More

We read a Globe article on good places to hike and this sounded great. We also read some great reviews on other sites that raved about it. One of the bonuses mentioned by reviewers was that it is very dog friendly. We're dog lovers so that was fine with us and we went hoping to have a nice Sunday morning... More
