Heading southbound on the Metacomet-Monadnock trail near the Crag Mountain summit
Craig Mountain is a quick, easy hike just south of Northfield, Massachusetts. With the exception of one steep rocky area requiring minor climbing, it's a very easy ascent. The views on top are superb for such a short hike - Wachusett, Monadnock, Grace, Greylock, and Haystack are all visible on a decent day.
