I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and have a deep love for photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world. Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream!
Certain trails around the Bay State are quite popular and can get a bit crowded. You may have run into more than enough people on trails through the Blue Hills or Bash Bish Falls State Park. If you prefer more solitude while you hike, there’s a little-known trail that provides an unexpectedly magical hike in Massachusetts. With a historical site and a river, this trail is as fascinating as it is scenic and you won’t encounter many other people.
