Another BPLer, Gary, and I decided to kick off the Northeast backpacking season with 35 miles in two days on the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail in Western Massachusetts. We started near the Leverett Village Co-op and went over the Holyoke Range to the Connecticut River. It's not as spectacular as some places out west, or even the White Mountains and Adirondacks, but it was a nice bit of trail. Here are a few pics.
