I need ideas for an outdoorsy/active October 40th birthday weekend getaway from Boston.

My boyfriend is turning 40 in mid October and I'd like to take him somewhere for a Friday after work, Saturday night stay and come home on Sunday. We live in Boston and 2-3 hours travel time is the maximum (via train, car, ferry or plane - I'm willing to get us plane tickets but don't want a long travel time, that's all!) I'd like to do something fun on Saturday that is outdoorsy (preferably not camping because we are already super active avid campers). My budget for the weekend is $800. Other than that, I'm open and need help thinking of good getaway ideas! Please, no spas. It's just not us. If we could bring our dog it would be a bonus, but most definitely not mandatory.
An example of an idea I had was to take the ferry from Boston to Provincetown, stay 2 nights in p-town, and go mountain biking in the dunes on Saturday, but I feel like I can do better than that. I would like to avoid NH because it will be crazy with leaf peeping season.
