Did this while doing a weekend CT AT section hike, lets just say I got Knobbed
Took Mohawk Trail to AT then over to the vistas on Pine Knob. Great, moderate hike. Awesome views on a clear day!
Fun, fan friendly
Solid hike, good challenge to pack into
Challenging with views worth the hike.
Great!!! Not as in shape as I thought I was, so I had a tough time, but so worth it!!! Drink lots of water! And have a good pair of supportive hiking boots- my trail sneakers were NOT GOOD!
Gorgeous wooded hike
Awesome hike! Really great views too!
Once you cross rocks over water, Either way to go is great. We took up the R side. More strenuous, but pace yourself, hydrate, it's worth the trip to the top!. Make sure when your coming down the mt. to head back, pay close attention, when ya come to a split, veer L. LOOK UP ON THE TREE, A SIGN PUTS YA IN THE RIGHY DIRECTION.... (The spilt that goes R, white marks, is N. Appalachian Trail). Keep following blue-white marks. Once you head over the mountain. You see two white marks and two blue marks. At that point keep L. Back on Blue Trail. (Don't go straight that's S Appalachian Trail) Not a hard trail to follow just pay attention. ENJOY
A wonderful loop trail up to and along part of the CT AT with two great views of the Housatonic Valley looking east. Taking the left/south path up is more moderate.
