"A short, energetic family hike to a backcountry peak that’s close to town.From the banks of the West River to the summit of Black Mountain, this undiscovered family hike conveys a sense of wildness just a few miles out of town. Don’t expect an easy effort, though. Managed by The Nature Conservancy, this extraordinary preserve challenges your conditioning on a bona-fide mountain trail. On any given day, wildlife, views, and an uncommon aura await hikers on this peak, but schedule a visit during blueberry season or when mountain laurel blooms and you’ll have the chance to experience a special outdoor treat."
