“Spectacular scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

You can see Boston from the top of the hill. Nature at its best in New England for glorious hikes. Conveniently located in Andover. Do not miss this jewel.

“700 Acres of old farmland with views of Boston and beyond...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Fabulous old roads and trails from hundreds of years ago (1600's) with view of Boston from the top on Holt Hill and Boston Hill. Amazing secret close to Boston and 495 and 93. And very few people were there! Ssh....don't tell them!

“Great Hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

A great place to take a hike, especially for those who are not seasoned hikers! We took our 2 dogs up to the solstice stones and enjoyed the view. Can't wait to go again!

“Unspoiled nature in a cosmopolitan town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

There are acres of maintained trails through woodlands and bogs culminating in gorgeous views of the Boston skyline. Great for walks in all seasons, including winter for XC skiing or snowshoeing. It's a photographer's dream.
