  • Well... let's see... It's a mountain... with a nice view....... Alright, when it comes to mountains, there's more here than what meets the eye ..

  • I've hiked this Mountain twice now. The 1st time parking a mile from the top. The second hiking near the visitors center making it about 14 miles round-trip. This Mountain is also part of the Appalachian Trail, the highest peak in MA. Another great option is to get sunset drinks at the top which I will definitely go back to take advantage of!
