  • Nice Mountain with the option to hike or drive to the top. Some of the best views are during sunrise and sunset hours. Even catching the sunrise on a drive over 101 is a great view. Peterborough with its attractions on one side and Temple with Ben's Sugar Shack and Temples which are all nice to visit.
  • This is a fun mountain to climb. There is an auto road if you just want to see the view at the top, and many hiking trails with great sights. Whether you are an experienced hiker or a family on vacation, this is a great outdoor experience.
