Hiking Alander Mt. Trail

On Sunday Jan. 25, 2015 My hiking group Hike N Praise and myself hike Alander Mt Trail in South West Mass.  We hiked up to an old cabin at the top where you can spend the night on a first come first serve basics the cabin was in good condition and it looked like somebody had just put a new roof on it which was very kind of who ever did that and I thank them for the efforts.. We were not spending the night just stopping buy and than hiking down.  This was a moderate hike and 5.5 miles long total up and down. It took us 2 hr to get to the top and 1.5 hr to get down.  Very nice hike in about 5 inches of snow and temperatures were in the twenties..  The GPS stats are below along with some pictures
