Hiking in Massachusetts (MA) will take hikers on trails along sandy beaches in the east and over the Appalachian Mountains in the west.
Eastern Massachusetts provides coastal hiking for the adventurous outdoor lover. Trails that meander along sandy beaches, and paths that lead over rocky shoreline are a staple here. Enjoy views of the Atlantic Coast as well as scenic bays and inlets, like Massachusetts Bay, home of the famous city of Boston. Nearby, Cape Cod National Seashore is covered with hiking trails that are easy enough for families to enjoy, but interesting enough to hold even the most avid hiker's attention.
Head out to Western Massachusetts and explore forested trails around the Appalachian Mountains. State parks provide a haven for hikers to enjoy pristine lakes, rivers, and streams under the thick forest canopy. Check out more urban trails near cities like Springfield and Worcester too!
