A fall hike at Myles Standish State Forest -beautiful reflection

A bike ride through New England in the fall months makes for a perfect Halloween! Mike and I decided to take a scenic fall bike ride through Myles Standish State Forest in Carver, Massachusetts. The setting was perfect for Halloween – dark, cloudy, colored leaves scattered among the ground. In addition, this forest is one of the supposed haunted locations in Massachusetts. There is rumored to be an old abandoned mental institution that lies somewhere in the forest and also several murders took place here in the 1970s, which could account for the many reported ghost sightings.

The best place to hike & bike in southeast Massachusetts

Myles Standish State Forest offers 15 miles of great bike trails. The trails are definitely a workout (lots of hills). The views are fantastic and it is never overly crowded, which is a major bonus as heavy bike traffic wouldn’t be good! It is definitely a spooky feeling going through the woods – not many other people around, dark and gloomy, and lots of fallen down trees. Even though I get a creepy feeling every time I visit, I still love biking here for the scenic views and fabulous leg workout.
