Why not check out some of the gems we have right here in MA. Come join June and Jim on this classic ridge trail hike in Central MA that overlooks Leominster and the view towards Boston. It features moderate ups and downs and roughly 1,500 vertical feet of gain along the 9 mile route. A nice warm up for the spring hiking season! Bring your face mask and enough extra clothing, food, and drink to be happy outside for about 5 hours. You do need to register at the link above beforehand.
