Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below.

The Robert Frost Trail (prior following the power lines to the summit)

Having previously biked/hiked the access road up Mt. Toby in May, I became interested in hiking a proper trail to the summit. The Robert Frost Trail would be my route.

The trail starts fairly gradually, before meeting with the power lines and embarking on a moderate pitched ascent to the fire tower.

Despite some haze, the views were still fairly strong - Mt. Greylock, Mt. Snow, Mt. Monadnock, Wachusett Mountain, and Mt. Tom were all visible.
