Josh and I hiked up Hickey Trail to Squaw Peak Trail (summit connector), then down on the Indian Monument Trail.
Wooded trail with gorgeous rock formations. Much of the trail is "rock steps." Well marked and maintained.
Summit view is magnificent, even on an overcast day.
Total time, with at least 20 min enjoying view from summit: 1 hr and 40 min.

Love this trail so much. It is a great hike. I recommend going during a colder weekday because during the weekends the mountain can get very packed.

If you begin the trail to the right, it can feel quite steep. Begin left, and trail is a tamer grade to the top. Both result eventually in the same great view of the Berkshires. Just be forewarned, they started charging $5 to park there.

Very cool climb with an awesome view. Went up with my 11 & 9 year old, so it's definitely kid friendly.

Very popular trail in the area so fairly crowded. Noise from nearby rte 20 lasts for about a 3rd of the hike. Indian slope loop gentler and less rocky. Hickey loop great ascent. Rock summit challenging with dog needing to be on a leash.

It has has a pretty nice view there, but its always crowded up there so its hard to relax. And now it cost $5 to park there
