Mount Misery Loop

Mount Misery Loop Professional Review and Guide

"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."
