About the Hike:
Wilson Hill is a small hill located on the High Five Preserve (owned by the Forest Society). The large summit clearing provides far-reaching views in most directions. The trail is a woods road less than a half mile long. The woods road starts in a flat forest, and soon emerges in a clearing. Turning a corner, the summit comes into view. At the top is a huge, grassy clearing with a few trees and rocks. The view is greater than 180 degrees, and, on clear days, the White Mountains are visible.
