Mount Beacon is a trail that is clearly marked, moderate in climbing and easy to get to. The views are great so bring a snack and relax at the top for awhile. A nice way to start a Sunday morning in the Spring and Fall!

Mount beacon is opened seven days a week. As the weather gets better and better the parking becomes a little harder to find at the base especially on the weekends. Enjoy!!!
