Monument Mountain is a well-known hiking spot in Great Barrington. So popular in fact, that a recent USA Today article named the mountain to its list of “50 Most Beautiful Sights in the U.S.”  

Literary giants like Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne drew inspiration from the views at the 1,642-foot peak, and an estimated 20,000 hikers make the climb to the top each year to enjoy the scenery. Enjoy Connecting Point’s visit to the mountain on recent glorious autumn day!
