On a clear day, you can enjoy extraordinary views of the “Essex River, Cape Ann, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.”
We were blessed with another beautiful day to continue our North of Boston hiking tour at the John J. Donovan Reservation & Sagamore Hill Conservation Area in Hamilton.
The Essex County Greenbelt has done a great job marking trails and we only got turned around (lost) once and clocked about 2.25 miles. There were some bugs and ticks in the shade and high grass but a really nice breeze and a great view at the top of the hill.
There were a couple of 4 legged friends next to the parking lot at the entrance to the trail.
That hat kept the sun and the bugs off my head – worth it!
We made it and what a view!
