Maudslay State Park is a great place to hike. It varies from flat areas to hills,woods and fields. It’s a beautiful spot and I’m lucky to have found it.

Loved the well-maintained trails. Everything was green and the landscape is varied. Be ready to cover some distance if you really want to see the park.

Nice little park with a small childrens play area and toilets. Very nice for off leash dog walking in the woods and everyone seems to clean up after their dogs, so very clean.

A large rambling estate, there is plenty of space for walkers, runners, bikers, dog walkers, right by the Merrimack River. Beautiful views. Not particularly hilly so suitable for people with buggies or very small children. Not signposted so easily to lose your way but you...More

Yes, they do. There is Cashman park near downtown of which has certain hours when dogs can run free. Winnekenne castle in Haverhill has 5 mile trail loop of which dogs can be off leash.
