The only problem are unleashed dogs who often take a nip at you. To avoid this potential problem stick to the trails marked leashed. The dog owners are pretty good about this. Otherwise a lovely place that can take you by trail all the way to Walden Pond.

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. The trail system is... More

Mt Misery is a hill in Boston Metro West. Although not a "destination" hike, the conservation land of its location is laced with pleasant foot paths that are mostly on old woods roads (read wide, fairly smooth, good footing, and gentle grade). Views from the top of Misery are underwhelming. Some of the paths are open to mountain bikes. Most... More

It might be a bit much to call it "Mount" but it's a beautiful spot. It was quite windy and so as we walked along the trail there were leaves falling down everywhere. It was absolutely beautiful. There weren't a lot of people there so it was a great walk around with my husband and enjoy nature. If you want... More

This is a great place for a walk in the Concord/Lincoln area woods. There are many different trails and most are an easy walk. Fall is a spectacular time to walk in these woods as the colors are sensational. Take the time to scope out the trail(s) that you want to explore. The trails are well maintained and easy to... More

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
