Just outside the city lie a number of parks that rival even the Public Garden and Boston Common in natural beauty, serene landscapes, and creative incorporation of nature into urban infrastructure. This hilly ride explores three of such woodsy escapes on the southern outskirts of Boston: the Arnold Arboretum, the Stony Brook Reservation, and Franklin Park. A fantastic picnic ride for a spring or fall afternoon, this ride is the perfect mix of tree-lined paths and forest jaunts to cure even the deepest urban blues.
