A family-friendly hike to a restored fire tower and an expansive 360-degree view that includes the High Peaks, the Green Mountains (Vermont), and the Berkshires (Massachusetts) on a clear day. Located in the Wilcox Lake Wild Forest, a 140,000-acre forest preserve, Hadley Mountain is the highest point at the southern end of West Mountain, a half-mile-long ridge. It is a favorite hike in the Saratoga area for the views from its fire tower, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. While modest in terms of mileage, it is a persistent climb.

The traihead is 1.5 miles down the dirt road on your right, you won't miss it, surprisingly a lot of cars there. We went with our kids age 6,4 and a baby who was carried on the back. It's a steady climb and the whole hike is close to 4 miles, but certainly worth it!
