I brought my 2 and 9 year old daughters here we did the shortest hike up to the solstice stones there was. I think it was about 1 mile total. My 2 year old (will be 3 in November) absolutely loved and had no problem with the hike. My 9 year old liked it but wished we could do more. Can't wait to come back with the 9 year old and explore some more and do some of the longer trails. The top of the hill had some beautfiul views, even on the way up we had some spots with wonderful views. The Solstice stone were pretty cool at the top too. The kids enjoyed playing at the top for a bit

We got an online map and departed from Flagship drive along nice trails and by swamps. We didn’t make it to Boston Hill. Next time!!

We have gone to the top of holt hill many times since we live nearby. It is our "go to" place on the weekend for a short hike. There are several ways to get to the top and depending on the time at hand we use one of the trails. The view at the top always feels rewarding. You can see the Boston skyline and the greenery from Andover all the way to Boston. My kids used to go sledding down the hill in winter when they were young. What fun!

It was so cold new years eve day on the hill. It is a cool place with nice long distance view of Boston and the southern sky. I had hoped to view a moon set but you can't see due west well from the summit. They close the parking lot a night fall so you would have to street park which is very tight (narrow street). It is worth a visit and the trails are very good.

Ward reservation an idyllic way to spend some time in the woods exploring some ancient Andover roads, find Phillips Andover’s old ski jump, walk in the fields while enjoying a distant view of Boston or climb the fire tower for excitement. The Trustees have created a place where you could hike for a day and not see the same thing twice, all within a couple of square miles. There is a parking fee but it’s a small price to pay for well kept trails and maps to find them just a short drive from either of the Andovers.
