Good Views  Sucess!

I hiked Watatic several times when I used to live in the area. Short hike up with great views due to the mostly treeless rocky summit. The main summit use to be part of a ski area. The shorter east summit is where the best views are. You can see all the way to Boston on a clear day. Other area peaks such as Wachusett Mtn to the south and Monadnock to the north are visible.

Trail Run Summit  Sucess!

Summited twice as part of a 10 mile run up and down the Wapack trail. When I first summited, I was in the clouds. 8 miles later I returned to amazing views.

Loop hike in snow  Sucess!

Stayed north on the trail to where it met the ridge north of Nutting Hill. I then went east to the Middlesex County Highpoint, then back to Nutting Hill, then up Watatic Mountain and back down the Wapack Trail. I was able to get up to the ridge in trail runners, but carried my snow shoes. I needed them up top because the snow out to the Middlesex CoHP was soft in spots, and then icy in other steep areas. There were a fair amount of hikers today, many, I assume, fed up with the record snow and wanting to get out for some exercise.

A quick rainy hike  Sucess!

Did the loop via two different trails, picked up 4 geocaches along the way. Done under 2 hours, with the pooch in tow. Cloudy and foggy, I could barely see as far as Route 119. Still it was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning.

Route Climbed: Wapack Trail  Sucess!

The trail was okay, as were the summit views. Compared to some of the other dayhikes in Massachusetts, definitely not one I would do over and over again.

First Solo  Sucess!

Climbed this very early in the AM after a rainy night. Excellent views. It was my first solo hike, but it got crowded quick.
