Ascend a small hill to where a massive granite monolith juts into the sky, then pass a swamp where another huge boulder has sat as silent witness for millennia.

Beautiful easy hike for those who are ready to get out of their car or away from being a tourist in Boston. Interesting sign post at entrance to path. We just happened upon this and enjoyed the walk.

It's pretty short one, and really don't treat it as location to visit on purpose. If you are in area, near by Singing beach, just visit this if interested to get into woods, with your dog so. not much great place to visit for.

Nice trail through a marsh, not much to see doesn't make it a must stop. But great for your everyday nature lover.

Agassazi Rock is yet another excellent Trustees property. The entire walk over easy to not quite moderate terrain is scenic and we were the only ones on the trail for nearly 2 hours. Our 3-year old granddaughter was able to navigate the entire route even...More
