Wachussett Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"The highest mountain in southern New England east of the Connecticut River, Wachusett Mountain,or “Mountain Place,” is the heart of a 3000-acre state reservation surrounded by hundreds of acres of additional public and private conservation land. With more than 17 miles of hiking trails, there are multiple opportunities to explore the mountain, which is covered with extensive areas of old-growth forests. In fact, some trees on Wachusett Mountain’s sweeping slopes are as old as 350 years, having germinated from seeds cast down as the Pilgrims were establishing their roots in Plymouth. A great destination for hikers of all ages, the mountain today provides four seasons of exploration with summit views stretching from Boston’s skyscrapers to the Berkshires."
