Cathedral Pines and Mohawk Mountain Trail is a 3.7 mile loop trail located near West Cornwall, Connecticut and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from April until October.
Trailhead at Essex Hill Road for Cathedral Pines is a well marked, but overgrown and hard to follow in some sections. The blue trail spills out onto Great Hollow Road for approx. 5 of a mile, then the blue goes through a shared gravel driveway and through shared parcel and up to the top of Mohawk Ski Mountain. Be advised, the trail is overgrown in many sections. Once at the top of Mohawk Mountain, there's much to see and the trail continues with along a road briefly and then deep into the woods. I did not get to the end and I turned around. My out and back totalled 10mi.
Went on this trail and thought it was going to be all woods. This is mostly walking on the road about 20% of the trail was in the actual woods. Im a woods type person and was a little disappointed. In the woods type part of the hike its definitely a HIKE a lot of uphill climbing. Im giving it 3 stars because of the woods part was so short but it was nice
