Join the Appalachian Mountain Club for a 3.7-mile hike around the Bentley Loop. This moderately rolling trail is free of snow most of the winter, but if winter is particularly generous this year, you may want to bring a pair of snowshoes. The parking lot is plowed by the state, so parking will not be an issue.

Directions to hike start: Myles Standish is between Exits 3 and 5 off Route 3 in Plymouth. From the south, take Exit 3, turn left on Clark Road. After 1/3 mile, turn right on Long Pond Road. After 2.5 miles, turn left into park on Alden Road. After 1.4 miles, bear left on Upper College Pond Road. Stay on Upper College Pond Road for 2.5 miles to “Hike and Bike Trails” parking lot on right near intersection with fire road Three Cornered Pond Road. From the north, take Exit 5, turn right onto Long Pond Road. Follow Long Pond Road for 4 miles to park entrance and then continue as above.

Cost: Free
