I hiked about 4 miles on the trail, out and back along the same route, starting at the Prospect Road entrance. This path took me to the top of Holt Hill from which the Boston skyline is visible. In general, the Trail is lightly marked...More

The Bay Circuit Trail is a wonderful way to escape the city and enjoy various town forests and wildlife reserves.

I've run parts of the Bay Circuit Trail in Andover (and beyond). Generally there are a number of trails that link up to make up the BCT. In Andover one of the better places to park would be at the Ward Reservation on Prospect Road....More

The trail isn't certainly where our GPS took us. No marks, no nothing, just houses and driveways. Their website definitely didn't help either. Went to a different trail instead.

Was part of an organized 16 mile hike in and around Andover and boy was it amazing! Trails are well maintained, thanks to the volunteers. Can't wait to snow shoe in the winter.

I grew up in Andover and explored all those trails as a Kid. I could ride my bike from one end of town to the other by hardly crossing any streets. The Bay Circuit trail has so many great hidden spots, some feel so secluded...More

It most certainly isn't where my GPS took me to for 17 Moreland Avenue. Not sure those people appreciated my touring their driveway at the end of the street either. Never found it. Went to a nearby state park instead.

We hiked the Andover section over a few outings. It is clearly marked and includes a wide variety of terrain. Andover is full of great outdoor space - enjoy!
