Hiking Skinner State Park Mass. 4-13-13

Hiked up to the Summit House on the Auto Road in Skinner State Park.  We hiked 1.8 miles up the auto road and 1.8 miles down for a total of 3.6 mile. I would classify this hike as easy as long as you stay on the road for most and highly recommend it to all..  J.A. Skinner State Park is home to more than 400 acres of forest on Mt. Holyoke, as well as the historic Mt. Holyoke Summit House. The park is located at the western end of the Holyoke Range, abutting the majestic Connecticut River. The park offers multiple hiking trails and breathtaking views of the Connecticut River Valley from multiple vistas. The summit of Mt. Holyoke is accessible by walking the road or hiking along the trails year-round. You can get more information about this Park by visiting their web site, here is the link,  http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/skinner/
