Wow, impressively well maintained trails. Some nice views from the top and even a register to sign in. Trails in excellent shape and easy to run on (although the climb is about 500'). Also worth a visit to the Miller tract which is 1 mile...More

Great place to hike. Easy hike for kids. Dogs are allowed which is what attracted me here. Perfect view.

A well marked trail system provides several loops for hikes. A pleasant surprise and so close to Springfield MA, something I did not expect to find outside of the Berkshires. A great family experience.
