Great trail to the summit of Mt. Greylock. ook about 2 hours & 30minutes. Finally found a trail that brings you to the summit of Mt. Greylock. Very wide trail& easy enough as the grade is gradual. A must do!

I chose to enter Horn Pond's Trail from the hospital located off of 3A. There is a path not far from the parking lot, which brings you to the summit of the Woburn Reservoir hill. It was a difficult climb for someone as out of shape as me but, the sweat was worth the view. You can see all of Horn Pond and it's stunning. One of my favorite spots if you're looking for privacy, a view, and some exercise.

Midstate Trail: Northbound Day Seven

I completed this trail yesterday 7/25/15. Parked on Gates Rd. by the Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary. Hiked through the sanctuary until we reached Dickens Trail. Took Dickens trail, crossed Westminster Rd, and grabbed Harrington Trail. Off of Harrington Trail, we took Link Trail to get to Mountain House Trail. Mountain House Trail is one of four trails that leads up to the summit of Wachusett Mountain. Once at the summit, we broke for lunch and snacks, along with some photos. At the summit it was a bit foggy so the view wasn't as clear and nice. After our break we grabbed Old Indian Trail until reaching Balance Rock. Took a couple of photos of the 2 huge boulders. Took right after Balance Rock onto Balance Rock Trail and ended in the lodge parking lot of Wachusett mountain. Great hike. The most difficult hike so far for me as I am still a novice. It was an awesome day with a great bunch of people. I would definitely return.
