Fun trail with some rocky inclines at the start. Intersects with Old Indian Trail to lead to the summit. We took a bunch of different trails zigzagging up and down the Mt as an alternative way back to West Side Trail.

Engaging rocky accent with plenty of breaks on West Side trail. We took Harrington back down to West Side road which was the perfect cool down.

great short moderate trail. Some rocky areas, but not difficult.

This is one of my favorite routes up Wachusett, going further down on Westminster Road, past Echo Lake Trail you will find a great trail head with a decent parking lot across the way. Light foot traffic until you reach Old Indian Trail which intersects about 3/4 of the way up.
