While there are numerous trails to choose from in Massachusetts, this little hike in Douglas State Forest will take you to somewhere you’ve never been before. Starting at a lake, you’ll then ascend 5.4 miles until you’re met with a marker that shows where three states meet. Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island all meet at the end of the Tri-State Marker Trail, and it’s a novelty experience that you need to experience for yourself. Lace up your hiking boots, enjoy a beautiful hike, and then stand in three states at once on the Tri-State Marker Trail.

Have you ever hiked this awesome trail that leads to the tri-state marker? What was it like being in three states at once?
