Towns of Andover and North Andover, about 25 miles north of Boston. The terrain is relatively flat, with some rolling sections and short climbs. Watch out for hikers and horseback riders, especially around the ponds and trailheads. Also, the terrain sometimes changes abruptly, from wide, flat woods roads to narrow, winding trails, which sometimes cross paved roads.

I've been hiking in HPF since 2002 and have parked on the side of the road many times for up to 6 hours and have never had a problem.

Beware of parking in the clearings that are off the road! For several years these provided safe, nearby parking. But now the Rangers ticket or Tow anything not parked at one of the few (normally full) parking lots!
