Most amazing 360 degree view

We are so fortunate to have found this lookout at peak Fall colors. We went up yesterday and spent a lot of time just gazing out at the expansive landscape, talking to other visitors and, of course, taking pictures. Yes, there is a $10 fee, but it is privately owned, and the owner has put in a lot of time and expense on the road and viewing area. Well worth it!

My Wife and I visited IRA on 8/21/16 and it took our breath away. If I could suggest one thing, it would be to add some grills to let people picnic on it. We will RETURN for sure. Thanks to our FRIENDS Roberta and Rod Braley for telling us about it.

We go a few times a year. Some of the most amazing views around. The rocks are fun to snap some pictures of. Be sure to climb to the top to check out the scenery and then drive to the top.

Amazing Views
Oct 2015
After visiting the gorgeous views of Quill Hill, I was inspired to find Ira Mountain, which I was told can be credited to the same individual who owns and maintains these overlooks. Definitely make an effort to see Quill Hill, too.

There are picnic tables, places to sit and enjoy the view and breathtaking views. The parking area is a bit smaller than Quill Hill, but even if you are parked in, it would be worth the wait to get out. There is also a large arena that has been made, surrounded by rocks. It's a little steep, but very awesome. It started raining while we were there, otherwise, I may have just sat in one of the chairs at the bottom to relax and enjoy the area.

Great Views ; Big Boulders and Lots of Questions
Oct 2015 • Friends
Beautiful foliage views from the top of Ira's Mountain. Lots of big, big, big boulders which line the roadside; a creation which makes one smile just thinking of how much an indivdual can become so dedicated to something which is so personal and yet also so public....The road up Ira's Mountain is likely to have already found its way into some list such 100 Quirky and Beautiful Places to Visit in New England -- and if that book does not yet exist, then a place like this makes one want to write it! Have fun - it's worth the detour!

We visited Quill Hill and saw the sign to this mountain. It was a nice drive up the mountain we stopped a couple times to take pictures of the foliage The view from the the top is well worth the trip.

Spectacular view from the top. Privately owned and someone spent many, many hours constructing amphitheater with stacked boulders.
