Didn't hike it, but drove on and around it during a foliage-viewing road trip. Beautiful views of the countryside, whether you're at the bottom of the mountain or nearer the apex. Iconic little villages, farms, brooks, etc. Unfortunately, the foliage wasn't that great this year...More

The hike to the summit of Pitcher is only about 0.2 miles. It is easy parking, and a mainly straight walk to the summit, which offers views for miles in all directions. Also provides a fire tower. Is kid and dog friendly. Awesome hidden gem...More

This is a fantastic little mountain with 360 degree views from a fire tower at the top. Probably the best first mountain hike you could take a child on especially in blueberry season!

This was our first trip to Pitcher Mountain. I went with my 9 year old and 3 year old. This is an easy walk in the woods. The trail is barely a quarter mile. So it's never more than a half mile round trip. The...More

This hike is a good introduction for children because it is short and the 360 degree views at the top are wonderful. There are rocks and a fire tower to climb at the top.

Gorgeous view from the top, and several ways up that are not too difficult. Also a couple geo cache which were fun for the kids. Amazing blueberry picking!

Perfect place for hiking and picking wild blueberries. The berries are $1/quart. No facilities though!

This is a moderate hike to a scenic overlook with a fire tower. But the crowning glory is the abundance of blueberry bushes (wild blueberries...tiny, not like what you find in the stores). I have done this hike three times. This year's excursion showed more...More
