The best hikes in Massachusetts are not only the ones that give people the feeling of getting away and reconnecting with nature, but those that also have a certain photogenic quality to them.

Social media is no stranger to scenery shots and today’s hikers often share their best photos of trails.

Travel With Data, a travel blog that integrates math into trip planning, recently shared its list of the 28 most popular hikes in Massachusetts.

The authors used search engine optimization tool Ahrefs to dive into all of the hiking spots in the state, as well as search results on Google and photos posted to Instagram.

Last year, MassLive presented readers with some of the best day hikes in the state, some of which overlap with this list, but here’s photos of the most popular ones, according to the data.
