  • 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 .. Spectacular views of the five surrounding states, an observation tower dedicated to all who have died defending our country...a few hundred feet away is Bascom lodge that's available for staying at or just for some shelter... miles of hiking trails including the Appalachian trail and multitudes of vistas....
  • 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!
