Fabulous old roads and trails from hundreds of years ago (1600's) with view of Boston from the top on Holt Hill and Boston Hill. Amazing secret close to Boston and 495 and 93. And very few people were there! Ssh....don't tell them!

A great place to take a hike, especially for those who are not seasoned hikers! We took our 2 dogs up to the solstice stones and enjoyed the view. Can't wait to go again!

There are acres of maintained trails through woodlands and bogs culminating in gorgeous views of the Boston skyline. Great for walks in all seasons, including winter for XC skiing or snowshoeing. It's a photographer's dream.

Ward Reservation is one of the better places in Essex County to walk, hike and mountain bike. While everyone goes to the Solstice stones for good reason, the rest of the reservation is quite extensive and worth exploring.

A nice place to stroll. Dog friendly. Great view of Boston at solstice stones at top. Goto place for me and the kids. Also has a nice bog walk.
