Peaked (“pea-kid”) Mountain’s 1227-foot summit offers panoramic views of Mount Monadnock to the north, Wachusett Mountain to the northeast, and Connecticut’s Shenipsit State Forest to the south. Now managed for timber, Peaked Mountain was once the site of a nineteenth-century charcoal operation, providing fuel for local industries. Scrub oak and deciduous hardwoods dominate this forest, which is crisscrossed with old fire roads that make this walk easy on the paws. Surrounded by the rolling New England countryside of forests, hills, and farms, this picturesque hike is a great way to spend the afternoon with your pooch.
