    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Part of the Town of Lincoln’s Conservation Land right off Route 117, this trail connects with Walden Pond. It was also a familiar stomping ground for Henry David Thoreau. Contrary to its severe name, Mount Misery is more of a hill than a mountain and reportedly received its name when two yoked oxen wandered here in the late 1700s and wrapped themselves around a tree, where they perished.

    Walking the trail today is anything but misery: It features terrain ranging from deep pine forest to picturesque views of the Sudbury River flanked with marsh teeming with bird life."
