Monument Mountan looked like a pretty area to hike in but I was surprised that you need to pay to park. I guess I can understand that a not for profit group of volunteers maintain the area, which is cool. It must cost them $$$...More
My husband and I do a lot of hiking and trail running. From the reviews, we thought we'd give this a try. The hike was nice, but considering that $5 parking fee (which we've never had to pay when he hike in CT), I think...More
