Hello from Massachusetts

I'm here to learn about hiking. I can't wait to start my hiking journey!

Hi @Josmichelle - Welcome to the community! You have certainly come to the great place to learn about hiking.

Massachusetts is a beautiful spot to get outside. I'm in Vermont and have loved being able to visit there in the past. Once you are ready to get out onto some trails, this is also a good place to ask for hike recommendations. There are other MA locals who could hopefully weigh in with their favorites.

Do you have any questions in particular to start out with? There are many members here in the community that have lots of hiking expertise to share. You might also find some helpful information on the Hiking and Massachusetts boards, which are both quite busy with new posts.

Thanks again for joining the community! We're so glad to have you here. 

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

@Josmichelle - I grew up in Massachusetts 🙂 Lots of good hiking options. I have done Mt Greylock a couple times, and the AT happens to go straight up and over Mt Greylock, so you can even say you have hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail!! Happy trails!
