Amazing day hike in the fall!

I did this hike last week on a Tuesday afternoon. It was quiet, peaceful, and colorful! Loved it. The falls were just a trickle, but the leaves made up for it!

Massachusetts / Benedict Pond

This is no ordinary loop, it's rain forest-like feels with small hills and curves, wooden bridges over marsh, and lookouts over the pond will keep you in awe at every corner! The trail is easy to fin.
