Lovely find not far from Boston so we can get a little gain and keep the legs at least a little limber until our favorite northern zones reopen. We did the Hermit Castle trail loop. Reportedly Northfield Mtn. trails are also on a COVID-19 closure. Lovely view from outlook and trails were very well-marked.
