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.
