Comments
Comments: A very nice New Year's day hike. I packed up my DJI drone to get some aerial video of the tower but the wind gusts were way too strong. First time to Haystack Mountain State Park and wasn't expecting much (with only 500ft in elevation gain from the parking lot to the summit) but I was pleasantly surprised by the really good views of the surrounding area from the tower. Beautiful way to start the new year. Check out the video link below, if interested.
