We drive to Mount Misery from Wayland whenever we want to spend a few hours in the woods. With lots of access points, you can walk for 45 minutes to the top of 250 foot tall "Mount" Misery, or for an entire day if you follow the trails on into the rest of Lincoln and Concord.

Mt Misery, in Lincoln, MA, is relatively small, but has trails in a variety of settings. A wide hard-packed dirt path goes through a heavily wooded area, with no sign of civilization, leading to a wide open to the sky dirt trail leading through one of the last working farms in Greater Boston. Then there is the narrow trail to... More
