A town in Worcester County, Hubbardston has a rural feel about it and has a welcoming community not far from Boston. With a location close to Hubbardston State Forest and the Wachusett Mountain State Reservation, nature is close at hand.
The town has an historic center and makes for a lovely stroll around, looking at the buildings and getting a feel for the place. At the 3000 acre Wachusett Mountain State Reservation outdoorsmen can hike, bike, and horseback ride. In winter plenty of snowy trails and decent skiing can be had, the mountain is more for beginners but offers load of winter fun. Enjoy wonderful scenic views from the summit.
Winters here can be harsh, but that's also the best time for skiing and snow activities in the mountains. Hiking in spring, summer, and fall is beautiful in the state reservation.
