Friday afternoon off, and we were acting like a pair of twelve-year olds.
“What should we do?”
“I dunno, what do you want to do?”
“I have no idea, you think of something.”
After ruling out three different options which included spending money, the possibility of having to deal with teenagers, or driving an hour, we decided to check out Breakheart Reservation in Saugus.
We were glad we did.
Breakheart has free parking, lots of clearly marked trails with varying levels terrain, and a paved loop that goes all the way around the reservation. There’s a small beach on the river, a fenced in off-leash area for dogs, picnic areas, clean restrooms, and a visitor’s center with free maps. There were people around, but it wasn’t too crowded. I’ve been meaning to visit for ages, and was glad we finally did. It was a great reminder that being outside is awesome.
It was the perfect thing to do on a summer afternoon.
