Myles Standish State Forest- Plymouth, MA

Myles Standish State Forest- Plymouth, MA

This past weekend we made a short drive down the South Shore of Massachusetts to Myles Standish State Forest. This is one of the largest forests in southern New England with 26 miles of land surrounding around 20 ponds and lakes.

The forest was a winter wonderland with heavy snow clinging to the tree limbs from a recent storm. The forest is accessible by a network of paved roads that have many different places to stop for hikes or bike rides. We drove around, stopping at random spots along the way to take photos and do short hikes down to the ponds. We did one longer hike around New Long Pond, that featured a nice trail along the water’s edge.

Once we finished the day at the forest we had just enough time to stop at the Rye Tavern on the way home. This rustic looking restaurant offered a homey and cozy ambiance on a cool winter’s day and was the perfect way to finish the trip.
