Little Mt. Grace and Mt. Grace are two nice peaks located in Warwick, Massachusetts. Though a state forest, the signage is terrible - there is only one sign announcing the upcoming state forest, however there are no signs for parking. The firetower on top provides great views, however the wood stair landings aren't too sturdy anymore.

Directions to trailhead: From Northfield on Route 10 northbound, take a right at the quasi-intersection onto Warwick Ave (this becomes Northfield Road in Warwick). There are little turn ins on the left side of the road, as well as a large parking area at the main state park entrance (which actually marked as a sports field apparently - the signage is terrible).
