If staying in Montgomery area, be sure and take this beatiful drive. Upper road is closed in winter. Look for the extensive maple sugar collection tubes on the way down!

Well maintained. Beautiful place. Bring your dog, but don't fish there....not allowed. Great hikes. Lots of Beavers, frogs, toads, salamanders! Go hike the mountain, but wear your hiking boots, you'll need them on your way back down. The views from the mountain are spectacular!

This is a very beautiful narrow winding road through the notch. beautiful farm country sides at each end of the notch before entering the higher elevations. Up in the notch, nice waterfalls and deep forest. Shady and cool even on the hottest days.

We enjoyed the well groomed trails in Hazen's Notch and the hike up to the summit with the 360 views of mountains all around must be amazing in fall.
