Since I wanted to cover as much territory in Massachusetts as possible, my route extend from the northwest corner to the very tip of Cape Cod. It is very similar to my 2006 hike, except I spend more time on Route 9, I include Route 20, and I stay closer to Boston than to the Rhode Island border.
Here is my route, mileage and itinerary. I hope to see you on the road!
