Play hooky from work one day this week and go on one of these hikes around MA. Each one has breathtaking views that are sure to wow.
1. Mount Misery: "Ignore its name and embrace Mount Misery in Lincoln. This circular, well-groomed hike offers views of the Sudbury River and Fairhaven Bay. And the woods were once a favorite spot for Henry David Thoreau."
2. Monument Mountain: "Hike to the peak of Great Barrington’s Monument Mountain and look for the cave where a conversation between Nathaniel Hawthorne and Herman Melville inspired ideas for Moby Dick."
3. Parker River Wildlife Refuge: "The Parker River Wildlife Refuge in Newburyport is made up of more than 4,700 acres of beach, dunes, cranberry bogs, forest, and freshwater marsh."
