About Mt Watatic

Mount Watatic is a 1,832 foot (558 m) monadnock located just south of the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border, at the southern end of the Wapack Range of mountains. It lies within Ashburnham, Massachusetts, Ashby, Massachusetts, and New Ipswich, New Hampshire; the 22 miles (35 km) Wapack Trail and the 92 miles (148 km) Midstate Trail both cross the mountain. The Yellow Arrow trail is 1.1 mile.

Mount Watatic and Nutting Hill Trail is a 3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Ashburnham, Massachusetts that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is best used from April until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

On clear day the skyscrapers of Boston can be seen from the summit. To the south lies Mt. Wachusett with the ski trail clearly visible. Due to the close proximity to Boston this mountain always has a crowd.
