My relatives in Washington state call Wachusett Mountain a "hill" when compared to the majestic mountains out west but to me it is a beautiful area and just big enough.

It's a wonderful and ideal hill for trekking. There are multiple trail routes. We have started using old Indian trail route. It's full of green and natural path without any man made stairs. Few places it's nice sloppy and some places it's steep. I'm pleasantly surprised when I saw many seniors who also walking on the trail. Many came with their pet's. Very nice! I am able to see multiple skiing routes but not sure whether those are operational during winter. There is a very well built road which you can use to go to peak using car. In the peak very nice 360 degree view and a small pond with plenty of fishes where you can have your snacks. There is also a washroom available in the peak. You have to carry water, food and first aid along with you. It may take around 1.30 - 2.00 hrs to reach the peak if you walk very relaxed and by taking lot of pics. To get down it may take around 45 minutes. 4 hrs total time is more than sufficient. The place is colder than near by locations and windy too. In the starting point you have very big car parking where you can park around 500+ cars also there are multiple extended car park which are free. It's very scenic location starting from wachusette reservoir so don't forget your camera. Certainly enjoyable and wonderful free to visit national reserve to rejuvenate yourself!
I like this place. It was easy to get to the mountain. Shuttle bus up to the front. Quick card, go to rentals, get your helmet, boots next, grab your poles, your name is printed on the ski's. Head to the automatic gate - your card gets you through the gate and your on the lift to the top. Family friendly Staff, lots of food and drink choices. Mexican food truck right on site. Even on a packed day it wasn't too bad for the lift. Locker price is too high though. Bring a bag to hold your stuff. Have fun skiing.
