Tekoa ridge in Montgomery to vista #2 lookout across from Mount Nero in Russell, also views of the Fire Tower and the now defunct Blandford Ski Area, and to Granville. Only one mile up but 600 feet of elevation gain. We call this the easy way up the mountain. From behind Strathmore Mill climb straight up on the main trail, take a left at the t-intersection cross a brook and climb the rocky trail. This takes you to the ridge network and moose meadow trails. #montgomeryma #russellma
