Boston input needed
I'm considering moving to Boston, MA. How is the kayaking (lakes and class 1-class 4 rivers), hiking and backpacking (mountains) in the immediate and nearby area of Boston?Darwindaroos@indiana.edu

I've run an interesting little marathon there 5 times. I did it ultralight, too. Too-short short-shorts for a man my age, singlet, featherweight racing shoes!
Hi Darwin,New England is a small place. Within a 3 hour drive you can find yourself in the Adirondacks, Vermont, or New Hampshire. Lots to choose from!
Within three hours, coastal maine and the hudson valley are possibilities as well, and probably most of the catskills. I don't do much paddling but there's a lot of nice hiking available, for sure.
