Wilson Mountain Reservation

Wilson Mountain Reservation Professional Review and Guide

"Rise quickly through thick pine groves high up onto a ridge with Boston skyline views. This route has some challenging rock scrambles leading to the overlook, but a high percentage of the trail surface is level and wide.

You’ll quickly pass a blue-blazed trail to your right near the trailhead, but continue straight on a level, red-blazed access road through a mixed forest of pine and deciduous growth. Turn right upon reaching a split in the trail, passing into a thick pine grove now gradually climbing on a trail bed blanketed with pine needles. The trail gets more rugged as you wind up through rock outcroppings. If local residents hadn’t joined forces and petitioned the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to preserve this ridgeline as open space back in 1994, the forest would now be suburban tract housing."
