Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary (Massachusetts Audubon) - Woodland Wonderland Trail

I just want to comment do not follow the directions to the trailhead on this app, find directions elsewhere. The directions take you to the middle of a golf course. But other than that, a really relaxing walk that I would recommend!

Quabbin Reservoir Gates 11-12 Loop

Our GPS logged this trail as 6.38 miles from gate 11 to gate 12. Add another 1/2 mile on the road between gates.

Easy and beautiful walk. It is 1/2 down hill, 1/2 up. Our almost 3 yr old did about 4.5 miles of it on his own.

Recommend taking the white trail (MM) up - its a great uphill hike, great exercise. Beautiful rocks you have to climb mostly vertical. Have to either park in the free area and walk down a dirt road to get there or just know to turn off early from 47 before mountain rd.

Cape Cod National Seashore, Provincetown and Truro

The trails at the were ok. Well kept and there many places to rent bikes. Our family also visited all the National Seashore beaches and visited a two light houses. I think it was more tailored to tourists than a place to get away. Driving to many places on the seashore we noticed a lot of business kind of run down? The reason I think no more than three stars is I was looking deeper into the enviroment. I noticed the destruction of many decades of deforesting that caused huge sand dunes caused by man. Bottom line over rated. Sorry, but this was what my daughter and I had viewed. In no means I believe this is a bad place. I think everyone should get over there and enjoy the outdoors.

Went walking here with my dog this afternoon. It's a nice loop that is relatively easy as it is mostly paved and the rest is well packed dirt. This is a great spot to walk with dogs and let them go for a swim.

Mid State Trail - Princeton

Went from Redemption Rock to Crow Hill Pond and Back.

The trail was well maintained. A few spots of having to scramble on rocks (which I love) and one steep ascent. Rewarded with a beautiful view and a nice dip in the pond.

Maybe 90 minutes of hiking in each direction.
