Let's climb Wachusett before the roads are buried in snow and while the leaves are still turning! Take advantage of the MBTA train by riding the Fitchburg line from Porter Square up to ride start in Littleton. We will be stopping at Wachusett café for snacks, Carlson Orchards for donuts and cider, and Cumbie's on the way back to Littleton. Optional longer ride returning to Boston via Lexington for those interested in extra miles & climbing :)
