Attraction details
Owner description: Climb a hill for great views extending from the surrounding Merrimack Valley to the Boston skyline, or explore this sprawling landscape along almost 10 miles of trails.

For a quick hike, go straight up the road past the water tower to the solstice stones at the top of the hill where you can see as far as Boston (Pru tower on a clear day), or down to the boardwalk area by the water. Trail maps are available for longer hikes. There are a couple of cabins in ruin and other historical landmarks of interest. Dogs are allowed (on leash), so this is a popular place for dog-walkers.

From the top of the hill you can see the sky line of Boston. A steep paved road brings you to the top. A very short distance. Many trails to hike in the woods.

A treasure North of Boston. Ticks are abundant so take precautions. The high bog is an interesting natural feature.

I love the views from both hills and the fact that the hiking is challenging with the two hills but not rough like in the White Mountains. I love the Whites too, and this trail is a good warm-up for WMNF hiking. I also love that it's so close to my home in Andover.
