Covering the areas west of Boston and east of the Berkshires, this guide includes Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden, and Worcester counties, with hikes exploring the wild beauty of Royalston Falls and Mt. Grace State Forest; following the historic Mohawk and Keystone Arches trails; summiting beloved peaks such as Tully, Holyoke, and Tom; and reveling in the vistas of Wachusett and Watatic mountains.
