Mount Watatic Reservation
Mount Watatic is one of the most visited mountains in central Massachusetts because its bald summit gives 360-degree panoramic views: to the east, the Boston skyline, to the south, Mount Wachusett, to the west, Mount Monadnock and to the north, the Wapack Range. The landscape is diverse with open ski slopes and rock outcroppings in various stages of succession, and remnants of old growth along steep forested slopes.
The Mount Watatic Reservation is open to the public for non-motorized recreation including hiking, nature watching, mountain biking, snowshoeing and skiing. Mount Watatic intersects the Wapack and Midstate trail systems.
