Miss Peabody owned this land, along with Powisset Farm. She was a delightful old woman who used lorgnets, loved Border Collies, and horses, and of course, farms. She donated Noanet Woodlands to the public. Would there were many more Peabodys around. Don't make them like that anymore. The Noanet Woodlands are beautiful - a favorite walk and cross country ski... More

This is a wonderful, peaceful network of walking, hiking and mountain biking trails in the center of Dover, MA. A little oasis that features a few small ponds, soft earthen paths and a few very challenging rock climbs. The highest peak affords a beautiful view of the Boston skyline. A haven for dogs and horses (watch out for those piles... More

Nice hiking space in the Boston area when you don’t feel like driving hours to the Berkshires. Based on the location, it was fairly crowded during the weekend and thus any chance of seeing wildlife is erased. A visit during the week may be more rewarding. There are many trails, almost too many and the trail numbering system is a... More

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.

this spot is hard to find. Make sure to type Caryl park dedham street on gps. and take the 2nd parking lot ahead on the road. if you take the 1st parking, you might join the trails inbetween and get confused. in the 2nd you will find the board in the left corner of noanet woodlands. there are many trails...

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...

I'm there most nights after work. You can always count on lots of friendly dogs and nice people to run into. A million trails lots to see.

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
