This is the highest mountain in MA with views of the Catskills and several towns. Your first stop should be at the Visitors Center for a map and information. Continue up the road to the trails. Some are steep and you should be in shape...More

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!
