Peaked Mountain (pronounced pea-kid) is a nature reserve located in Monson, Massachusetts. The property is approximately 2,000 acres (8.1 km2) and is owned by The Trustees of Reservations, a non-profit conservation organization. The principal landowners of its western slope, Leonard and Roslyn Harrington and Richard Elliott, have long permitted the public to hike through their properties to the summit. Concerned about the mountain's future, they sought the assistance of The Trustees of Reservations in developing a long-term strategy for protecting the mountain and securing public access after their lifetimes.Before you head to Monson, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Monson trip planning website, to make sure you see all that Monson has to offer, including Peaked Mountain.

One of my favorites local hikes. A trail for everyone. The park has two different hiking areas a mile from each other on opposite sides of the road. The mountain lookout area is amazing 180 view of the valley and surrounding landscape. The other area is a beautiful walk through the woods and by lakes and streams.
Place is Amazing!! Huge forest with just so many birds singing. Trails are all well marked and well maintained. I didn’t get to the top unfortunately( this time) but will definitely save as a Favorite on my book of journeys.
