If you're looking for some exercise, take a joke (pun intended) up one of Wachusett Mountain's many trails. No matter your age or athletic ability, there is a trail for you. The climb is worth the effort. The view from top is beautiful, especially from the observation tower. Differently abled or just don't feel a climb? You can drive to the top instead. The observation tower is also handicapped accessible. Bring some food and have a picnic!
I have been here skiing a couple of times and this was the first time for me to hike. Parking was easy enough. I enjoyed the hike up to the summit. The trails were easy and scenery was excellent. I'll definitely go back again.
Text to Pine tree trail with my best friends completed it within two hours. It was a nice quick hike to The Summit but it is all uphill. Bring plenty of water and good traction shoes. My two pups also had a great time.
Awesome trails to awesome views. Well maintained. We enjoyed it.
Place is beautiful but lack of signage for parking and where you Must pay is ridiculous I went into the visitor center for 3 min to use the rest room and got a ticket. ... no parking designation signs no one to tell you you need to pay just a ticket
