The reservation lies amid one of the most pristine, undeveloped areas of the state, with broad views of rural and forested landscapes in every direction. 1,227-foot summit. The ascent from the main entrance to the summit of Peaked Mountain is a 467-foot gain in elevation that is strenuous in places. The summit reveals spectacular views of undisturbed rural and forested landscapes in every direction: Connecticut's Shenipsit State Forest to the south, Mount Monadnock to the north, and Mount Wachusett to the northeast. In between lies a sweep of rolling New England countryside with valley farms and small villages. The Valley View overlook provides views of nearby Boulder Hill and the City of Springfield to the west.

Nice hike with great panoramic views. Took my 5 year old and he kept up just fine. The rocky trail on the way down was tricky for him and required some hand holding at times.

I did not find this trail too difficult. Just a bit of a climb. The views of top are beautiful
