Carlisle Reservation has a lot of different areas to it. I see reviews about a bird rescue - I don't know anything about that, but I know there are numerous trails. There's an entire equestrian area. Really spacious metropark, a lot of trails.

Such a wonderful facility with lots of scheduled activities for all ages. We try to hike each of the trails every year, and this park has some of the best and often less traveled trails.

We came to see the raptors and decided to walk in the woods. The kids spent a while playing troll under the bridge. :).

Big park. Can walk for hours, albeit trails poorly marked and lack loops. Always enjoy the raptors!!

We had a beautiful Saturday afternoon learning about how maple syrup is made, from tapping the trees to tasting the end syrup product. The staff was able to share their knowledge with the children as well as the adults clearly and kept all interested.
