Myles Standish State Forest has 35 miles of equestrian trails. Harold Parker State Forest features 3,000 acres of dense forest to hike, bike and explore. There are freshwater ponds at Cape Cod's Nickerson State Park. Magnificent views at the peak of Mount Greylock Reservation. Scenic walking trails at Maudslay State Park.
