We hike Well's State Park often, they have well marked groomed trails, we bring our dog there a lot and they seem to be adding more campsites. They trails range from very easy to moderate.

Whether you hike up the hill during the day, or at night by moonlight, it is a great walk! The viewpoints along the way are spectacular - and it is a great way to take in the surrounding areas!

The drive to get there it's stunning with lookout points along the way. Once at the top check out the Museum and the tower. It sure has amazing views. Don't forget to do some hikes while at the top. Sit on the deck at the end of an easy hike to enjoy the views!

What a great view! The house/museum is very nice, and the tour guide is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the site and the history of the Weeks family. The drive up is fun. .. we didn't have time, but would have loved to walk it. A great way to spend 1-3 hours (depending on if you drive or walk).

Now that we have an infant getting to the top of a mountain for the great 360 view is harder. It was amazing to drive up, then just climb the tower! No fee, suggested donation and we were seeing all the surrounding mountain ranges. Convenient and beautiful!

Long drive up a narrow road, pretty exciting. When you reach the top, you are surrounded by a spectacular view. Climb up and visit the fire tower, pack a picnic lunch. Visit the historic Weeks summer home. Free and friendly.

We have hiked this and drove this. The views are breathtaking. There is a fire/weather tower at the top that my 3 little girls think is Rapunzels tower. I cannot stress enough how beautiful it is here.

I love history so this was a great place to learn a bit of history & see some breathtaking views. You can drive right to the base of the fire tower. Short trails to hike. A perfect way to spend an afternoon.
