95 miles from Rhode Island to New Hampshire
The Midstate Trail is a scenic footpath located in Worcester County, 45 miles west of Boston. This 95 mile hiking trail extends from Rhode Island crossing the gentle hills of central Massachusetts and eventually connecting to the Wapack Trail in New Hampshire. The Midstate Trail is highly accessible, easy to hike and the best way to enjoy the natural side of the region.
The Midstate Trail Committee, under the auspices of the Worcester Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club, oversees the administration and maintenance of the Trail.
For those interested in hiking the Midstate Trail, the Committee publishes a guidebook available on the
Midstate Trail website. Complete coverage of the Midstate Trail, along with other trails in Massachusetts, is available in the
AMC Massachusetts Trail Guide
