Nice well-run park. We had a picnic on the summit (we drove). The road to the top is well maintained with just a few scary hairpin turns (they warn you). The memorial tower is open during the warm season and there is an observation deck...More

Is worth coming here once. The view is excellent, and is very quiet. We rode, but saw some walking. Make sure you bring water if you hike, takes awhile. Is one high Mt.

Cheshire Reservoir and Onata & Pontoosuc lakes are all right in the area, at the base of the mountain. I'm not sure if any offer kayaks to rent, but your hotel or lodge may know. The area is beautiful!

Cloud level can be low enough to obscure the tower, as it was during our visit recently. We could see it, but as if through thick fog. The road to the summit may be closed in winter due to snow. Also, FYI: On our recent... More
