Explore the Best Hiking Trails around Cambridge

Whether you're looking to get more exercise or simply admire local scenery, you'll appreciate the Cambridge hiking trails within minutes of Luxe at Alewife. As you explore, you'll see everything from historic sites to an array of wildlife.

When you're ready to lace up your hiking boots, the best hiking destinations near our Cambridge apartments include:

Middlesex Fells Reservation

At Middlesex Fells, you'll find over 100 miles of mixed-use trails. After exploring the longer paths, cool down with a short hike along Treasures in the Trees. This self-guided interpretive trail highlights the trees that call the reservation home. You'll discover why they're local treasures and learn how to identify their leaves, flowers, and fruit.

Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary

For some beautiful views, visit the Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary. You'll find 25 miles of trails, each offering its own unique adventure. Don't miss Billings Loop. You'll explore a mixed forest, pass old farm fields, and journey through a red maple swamp. During the spring and summer months, look for Eastern bluebirds near the nest boxes. Males are vivid blue on top with rusty-colored undersides, while females are grayish above with bluish wings and tails.

Blue Hills Reservation

A popular hiking destination, the Blue Hills Reservation boasts 125 miles of trails. They range from easy to challenging. For an easier adventure, try the Braintree Pass. Called one of the reservation's gems, it leads past mountain laurel-covered slopes and an Atlantic cedar swamp. You'll also see an old cellar hole. It marks an area where farmers settled hundreds of years ago. Braintree Pass takes about two hours to complete.

After your hike, grab some tacos to-go from a nearby restaurant. To call Luxe at Alewife home, please contact our leasing team. They'd love to show you all our apartments in Cambridge have to offer.
