East Granby, Connecticut


Dogs (leashed)


The Peak Mountain via Metacomet Trail in East Granby, Connecticut is a moderate 2.2-mile out-and-back hike that features beautiful vistas from the summit of Peak Mountain.

This hike starts out near the intersection of Turkey Hills Road and Newgate Road in East Granby, Connecticut and follows the Metacomet Trail north for approximately 1.1-miles before reaching the summit of Peak Mountain.

The trail begins with a steep uphill climb - during wetter months or after it rains, the trail can be very muddy and slippery while heading uphill so watch your step. After the initial climb, the trail levels out more with easy hiking towards the overlook.

Before hikers reach the overlook, there's one more steep and rocky climb, which small dogs or children may have difficulty with. Just beyond the last uphill climb is the overlook at the summit of Peak Mountain. Hikers can take in the views before heading back down to parking for a 2.2-mile out-and-back hike.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Biking: Biking is allowed on this trail.

Parking: Parking can be found next to the trailhead along the side of Newgate Road.
