Great hike with the kids. Love the waterfall for a nice snack break then a hike to the peak. Kids lived it and didn't find it to hard.

This is about an 80 acre or so property located across the street from Joe's Rock in Wrentham, MA. There are 2 color coded trails (orange and green). The orange is a shorter trail that keeps you closer to the parking lot, the green brings you further out. Unfortunately, it is easy to get confused because the signage is either missing or confusing. However, it is a great place for a quick walk/hike. I look forward to exploring more of the green trails and taking advantage of a small picnic area towards the back of pasture.

It was a great little hike. The wildlife was fairly abundant today. I witnessed wild turkeys, mallards swimming, and a 3-4 baby turtles. The field before the trail was also full of Easter eggs! There was an Easter Egg hunt going on for little children this morning.

This is a very easy hike suitable for taking small kids. One drawback is that it is the trail is in sight of a number of nearby houses. Even though there is only a single loop trail, nice maps are available. Also, it appears that geocaching is popular here as we spotted two caches amonst the rocks.

Cranberry Pond Conservation Area

I've completed most of the trails in the Holbrook town forest. It has well marked easy trails. This is great for an easy hike if you have never been hiking or just want to relax. Not too many people around. One can also cross over to the Braintree conservation area that leads to the cranberry pond.

Midstate Trail: Northbound Day Three

Not much of a "trail" as it is the side of an apple orchard, perhaps I didn't go far enough. Plenty of ticks with the long grass. We did see two deer though! So that was a plus.

Great Blue Hill Trail

This trail is slightly challenging for a person getting back into hiking. I followed the blue markers starting from the Park Headquarters with a steep ascent to Hancock hill which had a nice view. I followed the blue trail to Elliot tower at Great Blue Hill. The top of the tower gives a spectacular view. I then followed the Wildcat trail via Houghton hill to park headquarters. The trail was well marked and maintained. There were not too many people when I visited. The views were nice but would be better in the fall. I will visit again most likely in the fall.
