Attraction details
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We love Great Brook Park in all seasons...and the skiing concession does a great job of grooming the trails. We have rented equipment for family and friends and been very happy with the service and quality.

Great family outing... Trails for all skill levels.

Love this place. We were there this past week-end on a nice sunny Sunday afternoon. It had snowed the day before - the trails were excellent and well groomed. There's a few miles of trails that will bring you through wooden areas, meadows, next to a farm where you can hear the cows. Bring a lunch or some snacks for a break - there are some picnic tables where you can eat. People who say they don't enjoy winter should go outside and give this place a try in my opinion. It is just 45 minutes away from Boston and makes a great escape away from the hustle and bustle of the city + it's a great exercise for your entire body! You can rent the equipment there if you don't have one. Some week nights they offer night skiing. Must be a pretty neat experience, especially on a full moon night. We hope to go back soon to give the night ski a try.

Winter entices with plenty of groomed trails and easily rented cross country ski equipment, summer is excellent with ice cream and tons of great walking trails, Win-Win!

This is a bargain for outdoors family recreation. We particularily enjoy the lantern loop which features lighted night time skiing once a week. Lots of fun and no lift lines.

I first visited Great Brook in winter when I was learning to x country ski. Nice variety of trails, some even available by lantern light for evening skiing. Rentals are reasonable and so is the hot cocoa. But in summer there is also a wonderful walking trail system. Just print your trail map from their website since they're usually out. Dogs on leash are welcome. There's a working dairy farm with ice cream and a beautiful picnic area. One of our favorite local destinations.
