When stress builds up, one of the best ways to cool down is to get outside and breathe some fresh air. If you’re looking for a relaxing hike that’s away from the bustle of the city, while not being too far from home, Lost Pond Trail is for you. This easy hike is located on the far southwest side of Brookline, near Chestnut Hill. While this trail won’t take too much energy out of you, it offers some of the best nature views, a boardwalk, and of course, a pond. This conservation area is a bog making for a fascinating, yet relaxing hike. Get out in Massachusetts nature and release your inner worries on the Lost Pond Trail in Boston.
