Kim Falchek has been exploring the towns, trails, and hidden gems of Massachusetts since her college days in Boston. When not writing, Kim enjoys photography, going on road trips, and spending time at the beach. Kim has previously been a contributing writer for LA Family Travel, Global Munchkins, and Latched Mama. She currently lives in Salem, Massachusetts where she and her family embrace all things Halloween!
The state of Massachusetts is filled with hiking trails for all to enjoy. There are intense hikes like the Grace A. Robson Sanctuary Trail and the Ice Glen Trail, and then there are quick, easy paths that will take you on a relaxing walk through nature. These types of peaceful hikes are some of my favorites. One of these short but sweet trails is located in the little town of Hadley.
