Trail shared by Thomas Heavey

This is an easy trail with a nice view of the distant Boston Skyline.

Dogs are allowed off-leash in the Noanet Woodlands, but some of this trail (as well as the good parking sites) are in Caryl Park, which is owned by the Town of Dover and does not allow dogs to be off-leash.

Runner Notes

Some rocks and roots will demand your attention on this trail. Also, on certain days dogs may be around off-leash, so be prepared to say hello or avoid them.

Description

Starting from the Caryl Loop Trail (red blazes), turn at Junction 3 onto the yellow-blazed trail. Go straight at Junction 5 up a very gentle incline. Still following the yellow blazes (the whole way), turn right at Junction 6, left at Junction 7, and straight through Junction 8. Around Junction 9, turn uphill for the most difficult section of the trail. After about 70 ft of elevation gain, you'll go around a small peak, then straight past a couple unmarked intersections.

On the right will be a rocky peak (Noanet Peak, 387 ft) with good views of the surrounding woodlands and distant views of the Boston Skyline on a clear day.

When you're done with the views and possibly photos, continue following the yellow blazes downhill past three unmarked trails on the left until you hit Junction 36. Here, there are a couple small ponds (Upper Mill Pond, the larger one to the right of the Peabody Loop Trail—blue blazes—and Lower Mill Pond on the left) possibly with dogs frolicking in them on warm days.

Continue to the left to the end of the trail at Junction 37. This junction is an intersection back with the Caryl Loop with red blazes.
