You Can Hike To Where Three States Meet On The Tri-State Marker Trail In Massachusetts
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.
