Nice local hike for a beautiful spring day!
Hike through a hardwood forest on former farmland. Climb to the highest point in Northborough! Two scenic vistas to the east and Boston skyscrapers visible on a clear day. We'll make a loop up to the North vista, walk along the ridge to the South viewpoint and then back down!
Total distance: About 2.5 miles
Tortoise time: About 2 hours
Some climbing and hilly sections - nothing too steep.
