Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

In town for one night to take in Stockbridge, we ended up at the Briarcliff Motel just down the road from this site. We woke up, and hit the trails for our first hike of the trip. We did the Hickey-Peeskawso Peak-Mohican loop, 2.6 miles total. 2 hours duration. Parts are very steep and bumpy throughout, I was glad I was wearing really good shoes.

Our party of four enjoyed a 2.6 mile loop. We headed up the Hickory Trail (yellow) and down the Mohican Monument Trail (blue).

The signage was great, the trails were well maintained and beauty was everywhere. Trails were wide enough so that we did not have to be single file all of the time. This was appreciated as part of our intention in hiking, was to enjoy chatting along the way.

We marveled over the rocks, ferns and moss. There seemed to be miles of Mountain Laurels (when in bloom, it must be brilliant!). The moderate hike was an ideal choice; it made for a lovely visit with friends. I recommend it highly.

This was on our favorites list for activities at Acadia National Park. Plan to purchase a park pass as well as a Cadillac Mountain Pass. You will need to select a time to arrive. In my opinion, it is best to choose a time in the morning with the most open passes, so it will be less crowded. We loved the drive and the views. The summit was incredible with views from 3 different directions. We highly recommend this drive and planning in advance to get the time you prefer to visit.

This is a very unique and diverse hike that takes you along, up and over beautiful rock formations on very well marked and maintained trails.

This is a great active walk to the top. Great to be able to talk above the birds in flight. Walk in the footsteps of people from the past. Experience the Berkshires at it’s best.

Nice hike with great views, changing terrain, cliffs, cooling forrest, rocks, even some history lesson learned. Definitely a recommendation!

We traversed the whole thing, it was 7.5 miles and the view from flag rock was the best. Went to both top spots. No bugs and the weather was good.

My wife and I hiked up to the peak via both the blue and red trails, then down via the red (first) and blue (second) trails. We started hiking about 1045 and the trailhead was quite foggy. We had clear skies once we reached the top - very nice photos. A member of the Trustees greeted us upon arrival to the parking area - very helpful. We're thankful we had a nice sunny day for this venue!

Beautiful hike, but quite strenuous- stick to the blue trail unless you are in really good shape!
Volunteer Tom, at the start was very knowledgeable and shared some great stories as we kicked off our hike.

Parts of the trails were on cliffs and a little treacherous. Be careful and not all suitable for children. Bring a walking stick
