This 4.1 mile out-and-back/loop combo hike out to Noanet Peak in the Noanet Woodlands outside of Boston, Massachusetts is a great way to see the city skyline from the middle of the woods. This hike brings you to the old mill site in the Noanet Woodlands and circles two ponds that feed the stream that the mill sat on. After circling the ponds, the trail shoots up to Noanet Peak where you get a skyline view of Boston. If you skip the ponds, it's about 1.5 miles to get to Noanet Peak.
Fishing in the ponds is allowed by permit-only and Noanet Woodlands has about 17 miles of trails in total. The trails are not well marked, but there are signs to navigate to the old mill site and peak.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
