Photos of Grafton Lakes State Park Birding Trails

Went for a quick little hike here with my fiancé today. The trailhead was a little difficult to find even with using the AllTrails directions. If attempting this hike in the winter, do not go into the main entrance of Grafton State Park. Instead enter from N Long Pond Rd from Rt. 2. There was a decent amount of snow on the ground and even though it is all gravel road it was well plowed and drive-able even in my Chevy Cruze. The trail itself was packed snow with a couple ice patches that were easily maneuvered with micro spikes. The hike was pretty easy and is mostly flat with a few gradual climbs, be cautious about half way in during ascent there is a large ice patch. The day was a perfect mix of party cloudy/sunny and we were able to climb to the top of the Firetower which was super windy at the top! We were offered a 360 view of all of the mountain ranges in the area! Definitely will come back and try it out in the summer.
