Scenic trails through various levels of terrain, ranging from gentle hills to strenuous hikes. The paved paths are great for strollers, or get some exercise climbing to the rocky outlooks with views of Boston and the harbor. There's a beach at the lower pond and the park visitor station is open year round. The paved outer loop path is just short of 3 miles.
