Wachusett Mountain State Reservation Trail

Wachusett Mountain State Reservation Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Wachusett Mountain is home to a busy alpine ski area, but who cares when the rewards of trekking are so sublime? Bag the 2006-foot peak of Mount Wachusett, and you’ll enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the Boston skyline to the east, Mounts Tom and Greylock to the west, Worcester to the south, and New Hampshire’s Mount Monadnock to the north. You may even see a hawk or eagle soaring above.

This spot is one of New England’s top birding destinations, especially during the fall migration, when people come from miles away to see the raptors. At the height of the action, in October through November, up to 20,000 birds of prey fly overhead. (lf you don’t see birds on your visit, stop by the nature center and check out the stuffed mounts of New England birds.)"

Little crowded but lovely well marked trails. Would recommend for people with a little snowshoeing experience but not a ton needed
