Foliage in this part of Massachusetts is peaking right now. The trails have mud in many places, but it is pretty much all avoidable. Despite what is claimed in the AMC Massachusetts Trail Guide, Nutting Hill had no views to speak of (we were calling it Nothing Hill). The best views are from East Watatic, just beyond the main summit - a big payoff for a short hike.
