  • Fantastic little hike! Lots of great views and well kept trails. They even keep them well marked, which we appreciated!
  • Great place to hike! The ascent at the beginning is a little steep, fairly easy after that.
  • One of my favorite places on this earth! It's so peaceful and beautiful and Murphy Doo loves going for walks here.
  • Beautiful views! I once walked here from UMass in the snow, on a whim, with a few fellow clueless freshmen. Can't say I'd recommend that part of the walk, but once we reached this park, it was great!!
  • This is a great State park, plenty of trails, and admission is usually free on the weekends. They may charge for admission on the weekends but that is very rare.
