    Recommendations for weekend hike with girlfriend

    I am planning on taking my new girlfriend hiking for a weekend and am kind of new to the area. Any suggestions for pretty 2-day hikes in either southern or western MA? We are both pretty active so it doesn't have to be a super easy hike. Just want a chance to hang out, get some exercise, and attempt not to embarrass myself.

    I assume by overnight you are going backpacking ?

    I've never hiked in Mass but one place on my hit list has always been Mt. Greylock.

    Probably worth checking into!

    I wonder if there will be a second backpacking adventure with this girlfriend...?

    Haha. Hiking is always something I have done with my new GF's over the years. Maybe it's a compatibility test I like to throw at them.

    We've been exploring a bunch of the Holyoke mountain range, right by Hadley/Amherst area. I'm sure you could link some trails together and do a long day hike.

    The Appalachian Trail runs through Western Mass and Mt Greylock (as mentioned earlier).

    Ha! We have survived a few hiking trips so far. Now to see if we will survive the cycling trips when spring rolls around!
