“4 miles of trails”
By foot or canoe, enjoy incomparable views of the Charles River at its most serene as it slowly winds between granite walls. Or amble among pine groves and past wetlands along seven miles of trails and footpaths.

I used to ride the trails, alone (oops... not very smart to go horseback riding alone) or with my husband and daughter. After our horses departed to greener pastures, it took me a while to go walking there instead but now I do and I...More

Nice place to stretch your legs over varied terrain. We parked off of Forest street and I ran the red and blue trail. There was a mix of wider trail and narrow. The two overlooks were nice and featured a view of the Charles River.

New England woodlands are just wonderful. I'm so thrilled to have grown up in them and still have them available so near by. And there are so many places to go and find something new. Getting there is half the fun and finding a place...More

This is a wonderful area full of many different habitats and a variety of trails. Well marked and maintained. Limited parking keeps the crowds small but beware that you might not find a spot for your car.

Beautiful place for a quiet walk and the hike to the overlook is not as challenging as I thought after reading the description on line. Very limited parking is available but that ensured not encountering crowds.

There are miles of hiking trails here. This is a Trustees of Reservation property. It was their first property, acquired from Frederick Law Olmstead in 1897. Some of the trails are part of the Bay Circuit. The vistas from the higher ledges are outstanding. It's...More

Lovely spot for hiking near the city. Fantastic views of the Charles River, woods and river flats. Lots of different ways to approach the King Phil Overlook - avoid the trails used by the horses. The horses cause a lot of erosion and the trails...More

Great place to stroll with smaller folk. With the two major lookout points over the Charles River, its not just a hike - but you have a destination to motivate anyone. Hardly ever see too many people which is nice, its a beautiful spot that...More
