Massachusetts has two of the finest fall hiking trails in America, largely because of their impressive views, according to Conde Nast Traveler. The travel publication recently named the Skyline Trail at Blue Hills Reservation and Bellows Pipe Trail on Mount Greylock among the 26 best fall hiking trails in the U.S.
The publication noted the following about the Mount Greylock trail:
At 3,491 feet, Massachusetts’s tallest peak inspired minds like those of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry David Thoreau (look for a rock inscribed with some of Thoreau’s writing at the summit). The Bellows Pipe trail reveals what all the fuss was about: The view at the top includes a lighthouse-looking structure (the Massachusetts Veterans War Memorial Tower) and in the distance, Vermont’s Green Mountains, the Catskills, and on a clear day, New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
