Loved this little trail! There are two overlooks - one to the east and one to the west - that offer views across western Mass. It took me about 11 minutes to get to the clearings, but I stopped to take pictures and look at plants and insects. There was a section where you climb over a rocky outcrop that required me to put down my water bottle to get up and down. Very fun little hike that I plan to do again!

It was a short hike but climbing the rocks to the top was pretty cool and the view was amazing. We have dinner at the top then we came back down.
