Peak Mountain, also called Copper Mountain, is a traprock (volcanic) mountain located in East Granby. The trail follow the ridge of the mountain and offers great views. It is part of the Metacomet trail and there areas to park at either end. The trail rises steeply and then evens out as you reach the ridge. There you'll see the first of many spots to stop and take in the view (most people don't go further than this, so the rest of the trail is quiet!). Interesting geology (check out Wiki), great views, and not crowded! Great for dogs!
It was good for a short hike to get out and moving. Trail was a bit slippery with the mud but simple and quick.
Beautiful 4th of July hike!
This is one of my favorites. It's quick and the view is beautiful. I went yesterday and saw a black bear, so just be careful!
Nice hike. Not difficult at all. I love the view. Especially at sunset. It's an amazing place for sunsets! My dog loves this hike. There is another entrance that gets you to the top of this peak in east granby farms on 187 that is more steep and a little bit more difficult of a hike.
Really fun trail, can be quite rocky at times. Beautiful unobstructed views. Look for the little dirt path directly on the corner of 20 and Newgate road-if you hit the gate with the "No Trespassing" sign, you've gone too far! Be prepared for some climbing too.
