Hiking Mount Wachusett

Last weekend my husband and I felt like doing some hiking so we took the younger two boys up Mount Wachusett; I later found out that our very first trip up Wachusett was on that exact same day 6 years earlier!

We had beautiful weather and decided to try out a new and shorter trail that went right up to the summit without much meandering.  It was quite the cardio workout and we did stop a couple quick times (though the mosquitoes were out so they were fairly short stops!).

Once at the top we enjoyed the views and a bit of snack too.

That's the Boston skyline in the distance

The mountain just off to the left of the tower is Mt. Monadnock 

We took a slightly longer trail down but we did stop for a few minutes to enjoy the meadow view.

By the time we reached the bottom we were ready for some lunch.  We found a great little restaurant nearby that we had never been to-- The Mountain Barn.  We figured it must be pretty great when we pulled up to a private helicopter landing!

We had a pretty view from our table and the food was delicious!

We finished up just in time to watch the helicopter take back off.


  1. How fun! I snowboard there and really should explore it in summer!
