I had to be in Leominster today so wanted to try a new spot. Very cool place . 1/2 of trail is fairly easy dirt road . However when you hit the ledges there are some very steep hearty trails that give you the feel of real mountain climbing . I think I'd like to do it again

simple

very steep but a short hike with a great view

Such a beautiful hike for a quick ascent. The same view can be seen from a few different spots but the top is the best!
