Sometimes I like to discover new places close to home. on Friday I visited North Monoosnoc Hill (985'), South Monoosnoc Hill (1159') and Bayberry Hill (1068'), a trio of small peaks in the city of Leominster, MA, about 25 minutes from home. I'd known about these hills for many years, but had never visited them. Each was a short loop hike of about 2.5 miles over mostly old woods roads with easy grades and good footing. North Monoosnoc was probably the best of the bunch, with more diverse terrain and a large open viewpoint. North would also make for a great snowshoe hike when the white stuff arrives.

The first part of the Monoosnoc Trail runs along Monoosnoc Brook, which has some nice cascades. If this weren't mere feet from the busy traffic of Rt. 2, it would be a nice place to sit and relax for a bit.

The wooded highpoint of North Monoosnoc (985') doesn't offer much for views, just a restricted peek out to Mt. Monadnock.
