the trail markings and maps are extremely confusing because there are different parcels abutting each other and there is not a single map for the whole area. but there are some very nice sections of this home and a great view of Hartford from the easy to access summit

Beautiful views in the beginning, plain hike for the rest of the trail. In my opinion , the trail rated as "moderate" only due to elevation. Some areas didn't seem to be accessible by dogs. Overall nice cardio !

Don’t bother following this route, just do some research and choose a colored trail to stick to (pink, blue, yellow). I tried following and it jumped around too much. The route ends in the middle of the blue trail, and has you head back. Next time I go I will pick a color and stick to it. Nice trails, easy terrain.

awesome trek. Buggy lower part. So worth it.

Great hike with blueberries in July and a huge waterfall. can't wait for the fall colors to come. It is rather exposed so start early and bring extra water in the Summer.

Going counterclockwise is the shortest out and back option for the waterfall. if you continue to the high point, the view is nice, but not much better than Sam's Point. If you do reach the high point then your shortest way back is to continue forwards through areas overrun with flies. i imagine it has a better view for fall colors but I will try again in October.

cheapskate alert: parking is $10 and there is always a super long line for the bathroom.

Great trail with awesome views!
Challenging in the beginning going to the right of the loop, but nothing too crazy.
Lots of parents with kids, so you can do it!
Infinitely less crowded than Brackneck (at least the day I went), which is a plus

Nice day hike - we continued on to second overlook and then turned around so our mileage was longer. When walking the road from Bull’s Bridge look to the left, you will see a trail marker post with pamphlets etc which will let you know where the trailhead is. Very cool wildflowers, erratics, lichens and an eastern newt.

Very nice hike but very challenging (my calves were soared the next 3 days). The falls are nice and the upper part past the falls sees a wonderful forest path along the river, a delight! The path to the Appalachian Trail to mount Everett is indeed rocky and steep (strenuous) and views are not really there (unless you got someone to put you on their shoulders :D). Make sure on the way back (close to the parking lot) to take on a a left and cross the river (I kept going straight lost in my thoughts and realized that there was houses that I did not see on the way in and I had to turn back...).
Took me about 2-2h30 to get to Mount Everett with a fairly good pace.

Only downside of this hike is that the peak has no view, they took down the fire tower. Very anticlimactic. Beginning and Middle are 5/5 tho

Love this app!

Beautiful trail ,took my Pomeranian she loved the hike a lot to c

Well, And all my 30 years of hiking I must say that the landscape was very unique and interesting.
The most important advice I would give you, is that there is no shade in this entire hike(except for the ice caves). The falls were indeed magical and endearing. I plan to go back in the spring when there’s more water activity. I witnessed plenty of people with improper footwear, and that would make the ice cave exploration quite precarious. just remember to bring sunblock or a hat, sunglasses, plenty of water, and a good pair of hiking shoes. It truly is a great hike!

It’s about 9 miles.

very nice hike,great views, a lot of history, took the blue tail back, definitely recommend ed

Very strenuous trail which made it incredibly rewarding. Parked on 41 and walked up to the falls which were really pretty. Kept gong past the campsite (very nice, with a privy, bear box and platforms) and up to the AT for our first time. The AT portion was even steeper and rockier than what came before - I was very grateful for my poles, especially on the way down. As others have said, no view from the top of Mt Everett, but you'll find a great lookout point about 2 minutes past the summit. No bugs at all when we were out, btw, which was a real bonus! This is not a hike for amateurs. Met some AT thru-hikers...AND an enormous angry rattlesnake on the way down!

nice hike but like most got lost and ended hiking 12 miles. drag hill was exhausting in full sun but teddy of hike was moderate in the shade. Did it clock wise, trails around three camp were non existing. I was with my dog and didn't see any humans between first and last 30 minutes.

this hike was wonderful but the alltrail map was wrong and you will get lost if you try to follow it. furthermore it is listed as a 6 mile hike if you follow their loop it is 8 miles.

Did this trail for the second time yesterday. Started late in the day so we didn’t get all the way to the falls, but went to the ice caves. Started the trail to the falls then realized when time it was so we turned around. Oops. :) I really enjoy Sams Point. Highly recommended!

I found the trail moderate my 6 year old nephew made the 8.2 mile loop with no problems just did not like the 2 mile road wish it was more like the trail past the falls

great hike with beautiful views

Great place of adventure. Lot of up n down parts to make the hike a solid workout as well

and I forgot to add that I saw a porcupine

i did the whole loop, I went left at Fork first half of Luke easy to moderate then after the neighborhood you take a right back on the trail and then that's where the ledges came in and it was moderate to difficult and I really enjoyed that, the only thing not so good was the bugs mosquitoes and gnats good thing I have my cutter with me if not then it would have been a total disaster so I definitely recommend his tail but bring your cutter

It’s a short walk up a gravel road, nothing special. But who doesn’t love a view from a fire tower?

Nice hike. Well marked up until the bear swamp lake, at which point the directions on map seem to go off the trail and across a small mountain. I stuck to a trail that went around that mountain to the left. that part of the hike was the least interesting to me, and with a missed turn it ended up being just under an 11 mile hike for me. Looking back, I think you'd be better off taking the path to the right of the mountain where the directions go off the trail. All all it was a nice hike.

Great selection of trails! Make sure and take a map of you're adventurous like me

This trail was absolutely gorgeous and exceeded my expectations. Sam’s Point was a nice but very crowded lookout point. Once you get to the top past Sam’s Point the landscape is really interesting with all the dwarf pitch pine and wild plants lining the paths. The ice caves were really awesome and that was a nice short trail, but again, it was really crowded. Once we got onto the footpath for the falls it wasn’t nearly as crowded. We did pass some hikers along the way but it was mostly private most of the way. And the scenery is gorgeous. There are also lots of delicious wild blueberries lining that open part of the trail. You’re on an open mountain side overlooking the mountains ahead for most of the trail leading to the falls and the views are amazing but you’ll be exposed to the sun so coverup and wear sunblock if it’s a sunny day. There’s a point where you go through a little faerie fern forest and I thought it was just magical. Afterwards you go through a patch of white birch and then the falls are spectacular. We didn’t do the entire loop. We just went to the falls and back the same way but I plan to go back and finish the loop. Overall I thought it was a beautiful trail with some interesting terrain changes which kept the trail exciting. And if you’re like me and are really into plants you’ll love checking out all the different plant life along the way.

Beautiful place. I took a left on to a single track trail after a few hundred feet of gravel trail. It paralleled the highlighted rout above and let to the same tower lookout. Then continued on the m&m trail to Hartford rez no 6 for a swim!

nice trail
