In this first-edition guide, Madeline Bilis shares her years of outdoors experience in the Boston area, providing 50 hikes for people of all skill and experience levels. While the Berkshires tend to get all recognition when it comes to hiking in Massachusetts, the eastern part of the state is packed with treasures for lovers of the outdoors. From the rocky ledges of the Blue Hills Reservation to the sandy stretches of the Cape Cod National Seashore, incredible trails and vistas abound in this varied region.
Madeline Bilis is a writer and editor. She grew up in Dudley, Massachusetts, and spent summers exploring places like Mount Wachusett, Purgatory Chasm, and the Cape Cod National Seashore. After years of covering New England for Boston magazine, Bilis is now on staff at Travel + Leisure.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
