Comments
Comments: Took my buddy on his first hike in Massachusetts today and he loved it! Nice, mellow trails and great views were had. While the summit of Watatic was the main objective, the eastern subpeak of the mountain by far had the best views, since it was completely open (whereas the main summit was partially wooded).

Thanks to Riley P. for a fun hike!
