Mt Misery is a hill in Boston Metro West. Although not a "destination" hike, the conservation land of its location is laced with pleasant foot paths that are mostly on old woods roads (read wide, fairly smooth, good footing, and gentle grade). Views from the top of Misery are underwhelming. Some of the paths are open to mountain bikes.
Most trails seem to be marked but informational signage is rare; a map from the relevant town conservation commission would help. In principle it should be possible to walk from Rte 117 near the Sudbury River crossing to Walden Pond in Concord; however, since one is traversing public lands in 3 different towns, the way is not obvious.
My wife and I walked from the Rte 117 parking area, up Misery and eventually to the Lincoln MBTA train stop where there are shops, restaurants and a supermarket. On the Sunday we were there the place was mostly closed except for one restaurant ($$) and the market (which has a deli with sandwiches). We found the path from the Mt Misery area to Lincoln by asking a volunteer ate the community farm. By the most direct route the one way distance is about 2 miles.
All in all, a pleasant place to walk and explore. Appropriate for all ages.
