Noanet Woodlands - Hiking
Noanet Woodlands offers hikers both gentle and more strenuous trails. Hike up Noanet Peak for a satisfying climb and a distant view of Boston.
Destination Distance From Downtown
The trails at Noanet Woodlands are incredibly well-marked, well-maintained, and, until the short climb up Noanet Peak, have very easy footing. I saw walkers of all ages and skill levels enjoying these Woodlands.
Time To Complete
At a moderate pace, you can explore Noanet's 4 trails in about 3.0 hours. To hike just the Noanet Peak Trail, allow 1 hour.
Hikers can expect relatively easy footing year round. Few areas on the trail are at risk of flooding, and even with snow cover the trails are wide enough and slopes gentle enough to hike comfortably without tech gear.
Dogs are allowed off leash in the Noanet Woodlands on all trails except near Lower Mill Pond so long as they are within sight and will not approach other visitors. Otherwise, the reservation will ask you to leash your pet. There is a limit of 2 dogs per person.
Hiking does not require a fee or permit -- nor does parking in the main lot by the Ranger Station -- but mountain bikers will have to obtain a permit prior to visiting Noanet's trails.
