Park closes at 8pm in the summer, which was a bummer; we would have liked to stay for sunset! overall, loved this hike! many trail options for all hiking needs. Took the Keystone Trail/keystone extension from the parking lot to access the M-M. Gradual incline, no stress! At the peak, there are several clearings to view Western Mass, its like you keep peaking! Trails were extremely well-marked.

Excellent hike! Very steep in places, wouldn't recommend if you're a beginner or bringing small children. Absolutely amazing views, best in the area!
