This Hike Is Perfect For An Appalachian Adventure Weekend In Massachusetts
At 2,200 miles long, taking on the entire Appalachian Trail just isn’t an option for most of us, but don’t let this legendary trail intimidate you! There are hundreds of amazing portions that are perfect for any hiker or backpacker that allow you to build your own adventure at the exact length and difficulty to desire.
This particular section is an excellent way to spend a weekend! The route runs for 24 miles between Dalton and North Adams in Massachusetts, but when broken up over two-and-a-half days with beautiful spots to camp along the way, it’s an absolutely manageable adventure that doesn’t require the expertise or endurance of an epic exploration and still provides you with an amazing outdoor experience.
Hiker and photographer Chris Daniele chronicled his trip along this route to give you a peek at the trail and tempt you to put on your hiking boots and head out on your own Appalachian adventure!
