  • This state park is really fantastic. There's a trail for pretty much everyone (with the exception of mountain hikers) and various topography that will keep you coming back and finding a new 'favorite'...  more »
  • I spend time here almost every week. Main trail is a nice walk but there are also many back trails if you want to spend more time. Back trails slightly more rugged and with less people. I think it is ...  more »

  • It is truly a beautiful park. There are so many trails! The mosquitoes weren't exactly wonderful but for the view, it was worth it. If it were just for the nature, this review would be five stars. But unfortunately, we humans think we can control everything. Nature is not something that should be paid for, people. I was beyond dissapointed that we had to pay $5.00 for parking when all we wanted to do was walk at a park with our dog. In the last 2+ years we have had our dog, we have gone to many parks in Mass and this was the first one that ever charged anything at all. It's kind of preposterous. Sure, it's clean (shouldn't we all be keeping nature clean though FOR FREE?). Sure, there's a ranger there to help answer questions (apparently judging ones dog is part of their duties too). Sure, there's maps available. Sure, it's historic with a mansion to visit and different activity areas. Sure they hold little events near the Smith Farm. But there should be a way for people to go there JUST to walk and enjoy nature FREELY. Sadly, I won't be returning. My morals don't stand for a place that charges for parking AND gets money from annual parking passes AND accepts donations when all I really want to do is WALK and take in the view of NATURE. Nature is just that. Nature. It is not "ours" to be charging money to use it. On top of that, it felt very strict. I refuse to be at a place that makes me uncomfortable to enjoy nature. We will happily continue going to FREE parks. Thanks, but no thanks town of Easton. Huge disappointment.
  • Great place for the whole family. Has a giant field to play sports. Easy walking paths or kids which can be tailored to the perfect length just by turning off at any point. Nice technical rocky terrain for the mountain biker!
  • Great place to bring your dog. Just be careful of following some of the small trails because because it is easy to get lost. A lot of the small trails look like they are main trails. My dog loves going here because he gets to interact with all sorts of other dogs when its crowded.
  • Has a lot to offer. Beautiful grounds that are well kept, great trails for walking or running (just under 3 miles if you do the main trail around the lake), and one of my favorite disc golf courses in the area.
  • Beautiful place for a short or long walk. Very popular with dog walkers, most were leashed. Great family spot for picnics.
