Posted by Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism

It’s officially springtime here in Massachusetts, and though the weather has yet to turn with spring’s ever-familiar seasonal attributes, we thought we’d get a jump on some outdoor adventure suggestions.

Recently, on Facebook and Twitter, we asked our fans to share their favorite place in Massachusetts for a spring hike; the response was fantastic — so much so, that we decided to feature them in today’s post!

Each of Massachusetts’ many trails and paths offer distinct sights, flora, fauna and terrain — needless to say, there’s a hike for everyone. Surely, these are just a few of Massachusetts’ many hiking spots, so if you’re looking for a more robust list, check out the ‘Search Hiking’ feature on our site.

Is there a hike that you would like to have added to our list? Tell us in the comments below, and we’ll add it! 🙂
