  • 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 »

  • I mountain bike here regularly they have NEMBA groomed trails. There is an excellent disc golf course. Discs are available to borrow. There's an incredible historic feel as well as architecture complementing the landscape. there are plenty of signs to indicate history.
  • Proud to say I have done every trail in this park! It is a great getaway and makes you feel like you are much further away than you are from civilization. Beautiful lakes woods and clearings. It also boasts a pretty amazing Frisbee golf course! Definitely a historic and well worth it getaway for the family.
  • Took the girlfriend for her first time Frisbee golfing and had alot of fun. Took us a little bit to navigate the course but everyone there was nice. Recommend the course to anybody
  • Borderland State Park is the premier place to hike,, take your dog for a long walk, plan a picnic, have a photoshoot near historic buildings, or to play frisbee golf in nearby Easton MA. There are so many different trails with varying degrees of difficulty in terms of terrain, as well as catering to various activities such as hiking, mountain biking, joggers, or those looking for a leisurely stroll around the park. I always take my dog here and we have a great time, most people with pets are friendly and most know to ask if they can pet your dog before actually doing so, although some people are oblivious that not all dogs get along and not all want to say hi to each other, lol, but that's not the park' fault. The last time my dog and I went for a hike, we went 6 miles, quite a long walk, see, we took a wrong turn and ended up on the mountain bike/backpack hiking trail in which we had to traverse very difficult terrain deep in the woods with not many blue markers to let us know which way to go, we nearly got lost and I panicked just a bit until we found some mountain bikers on the trail (they were literally the only people we saw after walking the trail for about 25 minutes) who showed us the way back to the main trail leading to the exit of the park, thank goodness. I would recommend better signage or more signs or flags to indicate the correct path that you're walking/hiking/biking and also put signs for no flexi-leashes which allow other peoples dogs to basically roam free to a certain extent, potentially harming other people' dogs that they bring, but overall, this is a fantastic park that is very inexpensive to enter and you could easily spend a few hours here and not realize it!
  • Great for hiking alone or with my children because of the varying trail lengths. The mansion that Blanche Ames built is interesting. My only complaint is that the disc golf courses always smell like some sort of fruity skunk.
