Owner description: 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.

“Fantastic Place to Hike with Small Kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

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 we visit often. Only downside is parking which is extremely limited and often taken up by out of towners accessing Farm Pond.

“cozy”

not big, not much variation in terrain. Parking better than normal. Good if you are local, otherwise easy to find better.

Best approach is by canoe. Otherwise, the trails are nice but e prepared to hike a bit. Fine views of the Charles River.

“Great hiking spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

I like this area. It's clean, pretty well marked and has a few different parking areas. Though the BEST way to see it is by kayaking on the Charles River and pulling up to its shoreline for a lunch break. Climb the overlook for the superb view.
