Today Gus and I Adventured to Breakheart Reservation in Saugus, Massachusetts. Breakheart Reservation is 640 acres of forest which includes many trails, hills, a dog park, and two lakes. It is popular for walking, running, biking, swimming, and fishing. Breakheart Reservation is free to visitors.
We had a peaceful Adventure to Breakheart Reservation. I decided to take Gus on his own Adventures today, while Wilma was relaxing at Grandma and Grandpa’s spa! I feel this is important for him to increase his independence as he is much more comfortable when Wilma is by his side. So today Gus and I explored Breakheart Reservation. We decided to take the Healthy Heart Trail, a two mile paved, loop trail. Throughout our walk we saw many side trails but decided to traverse the main trail today, partially because Gus is still getting used to her surroundings and I expected this loop be may more predictable. Along the way we passed several lakes, found many mushrooms, viewed endless boulders, and enjoyed a quiet walk through the forest. Gus was curious to explore any little stream of water he could find, chewing sticks, and practicing posing. There were many walking with their dogs, and we only saw one off leash, although the owner quickly leashed him when we came in sight. Gus is still working on being confident, but earlier in the day he met a new puppy friend, so he clearly is making progress. He is doing better when we see people, and on occasion will warm up to them. Breakheart Reservation was very unique and had many options for walking. So glad we could visit Breakheart Reservation today (Rating: 4).
