This is a relatively short hike to wonderful views from long rocky areas so there is plenty of room to find your own private picnic spot on the rocks. Steep climb up but do-able by fit people and agile dogs.

My family and I skied Black Mountain for the first time in February and loved it! We usually go to Cranmore, which is another favorite for us. Black is such a special place I can't believe I hadn't heard of it when I was younger....More

Nice ski area for families. Came by to check out the snow sculptures which were right at the base of the skiing.

Black Mountain is a classic old school New England ski mountain. The trails can be narrow and tree lined. The lifts are small and slower compared to the other resorts nearby. There is plenty of challenging terrain for advanced skiers and green trails for beginners....More
