Tackle 17 Miles Of Hiking Trails At Wachusett Mountain State Reservation For The Best Fall Views In Massachusetts

We’d argue that fall is the best time of year to wander through the Bay State, and one of the best ways to embrace the season is by taking a beautiful nature hike. Though there are tons of parks and nature preserves to explore when the leaves turn, Wachusett Mountain State Reservation in Princeton is arguably home to the best fall views in the state.

With over 17 miles of hiking trails to take on, including a massive mountain to summit for the best vantage point of the leaves, it doesn’t get better than this. If you’re looking to take a hike to view the fall foliage in Massachusetts, you need to take on one of the many hiking trails within Wachusett Mountain State Reservation.
