Peaked Mountain

Peaked Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Peaked (“pea-kid”) Mountain’s 1227-foot summit offers panoramic views of Mount Monadnock to the north, Wachusett Mountain to the northeast, and Connecticut’s Shenipsit State Forest to the south. Now managed for timber, Peaked Mountain was once the site of a nineteenth-century charcoal operation, providing fuel for local industries.

Scrub oak and deciduous hardwoods dominate this forest, which is crisscrossed with old fire roads that make this walk easy on the paws. Surrounded by the rolling New England countryside of forests, hills, and farms, this picturesque hike is a great way to spend the afternoon with your pooch."

For the area this is a pretty good mountain. The trail is wide and well groomed with a good sized parking area. There are 2 scenic vista's. 1 has a much better view of the other. All in all it's not a bad local spot to go for an hour hike. The bugs were out in full force but that's expected in June.
