Noanet Woodlands Hiking Trails (Dover, MA)

The Noanet Woodlands Hiking Trails in Dover, Massachusetts provides approximately 17 miles of hiking trails (595 acres). This preserve features woodlands, ponds, all kinds of wildlife depending on the season: songbirds, orioles, hawks, painted turtles, bullfrogs, etc. Follow the yellow markers and hike approximately 1.6 miles to the summit of the 387 foot high Noanet Peak and see the spectacular view of the Boston skyline. This loop trail (yellow markers) is about 3.2 miles long with moderate to heavy traffic, since everyone is trying to get to Noanet Peak to see the Boston skyline. Watch your step of the rocky cliffs while you photograph your group with the Boston skyline in the background. You should wear appropriate hiking footwear, not just for the rocky cliffs but also since many of the trails have exposed roots and rocks which is challenging even for the experienced hiker. Most people should be able to handle the Noanet Woodlands trails, however if steep inclines are challenging, I would recommend a walking stick or trekking poles. Pets are allowed but must be on a leash.
