I’ve lived in Lowell, Massachusetts, my entire life.
Although I briefly left to attend college, I was eager to return and happy to secure a job within my community.
I love the friendly atmosphere, the rich history and the beautiful New England scenery. I spend as much time as possible outside. One of my favorite Lowell destinations in the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest. It’s a great opportunity to escape the rush and responsibilities of everyday life. The forest spans over one thousand acres and offers pristine trails and a diverse ecosystem. The State Forest was established in 1909, and since then, it’s evolved into an impressive destination for anyone who appreciates the natural landscape of Massachusetts. The forest combines hardwood and pine forests, ponds, streams and wetlands. The biodiversity provides a home to a wide variety of bird species, malls and reptiles. During my various hikes, I’ve spotted owl, woodpeckers, hawks, cardinals and bluejays. I’ve also caught glimpses of red foxes, Eastern box turtles and whit-tailed deer. The hiking and biking trails through the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest are well-maintained and extensive. The difficulty level caters to all ages and skill. For a leisurely stroll or a good bike path, I recommend Pawtucket Boulevard Trail. It hugs the Merrimack River and offers breathtaking views. When I want something more challenging, I choose the Crow’s Nest Trail. The rugged, hilly terrain is more strenuous but also provides panoramic views of the surrounding visats. I visit the State Forest at all times of years. I appreciate the change in colors, foliage, temperature and even the smells. The fall is my favorite season because of the gorgeous colors of the leaves.
