Owner description: Ascend this popular peak, which once drew 19th-century literary giants, and from its summit gaze across the spectacular landscapes of the Housatonic River Valley.

This is an excellent hike up to the summit - there are options re the degree of difficulty or steepness of one's ascent or descent, but it is worth it. The view at the top is excellent and we should have packed a lunch.

Just challenging enough. The directions on the app takes you to 82 Railroad St ( this is the middle of town ) and we had to turn around and drive 4 miles back to the monument trail which is located across from the Monument High school. Trails in some areas are rocky and steep. No facilities. I would go again.

This was our first visit and we had a good afternoon hike. The mountain has a 1600 foot summit with beautiful 360 views on a clear day. We found the hike challenging at times with sections of steep inclines, ledges and slick quartzite and roots to navigate. The views on Squaw Peak were well worth the work to get there.

Depending on you skill level this can be a great hike. Some steep trails but the online maps are very helpful. The views at the top are lovely.
