This is a really nice place to go for an after work hike. It's not too difficult and the terrain is full of neat things to explore.

Boston Hill, which was historically a mining site, offers a fantastic trail system for a hike or bike ride. The trail system is easily accessible from downtown via various trailheads-- S. Cooper Street, Spring Street, ect.-- and offers a gorgeous view of the town.
