Take 116 to River Rd in Deerfield, after 1.5 miles take a left on Hillside Rd. The trailhead is frabout 1/3 of a mile up Hillside Rd.

Nice alternative to hiking the trails of sugarloaf with the tower on top. I didn’t see anyone out hiking so it was much more peaceful and the multiple cris crossing colored trails aren’t a straight up ascent. All of the different ways up are much more gradual. The x spot on trail map is where there’s a nice view! Make sure to check that out. My only complaint was I got confused a few times because the red blue and yellow markers weren’t super consistent always, definitely think the trails need need to be better marked as a few times I ended up off trail and had to turn around.
