Super scenic! Easy reverse hike (downhill first). Pretty sure it’s only 1 mile total.

Easy hike, very wide in parts. Seemed good for mountain biking. A little underwhelming. Could peek between trees to get a view, but not spectacular.

Great trail....starts steep right off the bat. Have to cross the water a few times getting to the top. Great views of the upper falls. AT to Everett is steep but worth the hike. Ran / Hiked rt 41 to Everett and back in 2 1/2 hrs.

Very nice trail. Woods opening up to some beautiful ocean vistas.

Easy side of moderate with lots of roots, mud, flat rocks.

We went up the hills with dogs and it was nice.

Excellent trail. Well marked with some nice views along the way. Might be better suited as an Easy than Moderate, but a really enjoyable walk and hike. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Okay, so I'm still a beginner hiker...this was hard! I really enjoyed myself, don't get me wrong, but yikes! There's a lot of climbing boulders, up and down. Looks easier for kids and people in great shape...but great exercise!

Excellent trail, very people and dog friendly. Hike it early as it gets quite busy after 11, especially on weekends. A very moderate hike that can be made in under two hours. Take the few extra minute to go to East side of peak to get a nicer view to the east. Mt. Wachusetts is prominent to the South, but you have to find just the right spot to see Monadnock to the West. Lots of hawks during migrating seasons.

My whole family loves going here! My daughter wanted to get married there. Our dogs have enjoyed it as well.!

Pretty straight forward, crowded however in summer with a lot of of bathers in the falls! Fun for kids.

This one is a more challenging hike (but I am a beginner) at points it gets very steep but the views at the end make it worth it

Nice hike! Parking lot indicated works well. Leaves just fell on trail so it was a little tricky in spots, but overall pretty well blazed. Pine woods in the first mile is really nice as is the pond!

Took the clockwise loop up Midstate to Wapack... less steep. Couldn’t see a view from Nuttings Hill but the views from Watatic were very good. I was the only person on the peak when I arrived, 9:30 on a Wednesday, but the parking lot was filling up as I was leaving. Definitely one of the better views in Ma. Trails can be very confusing without a GPS. A few more signs at the various junctions would be helpful.

Awesome day! We did the whole trail 21.5 miles for the trail, but clocked 23 for the day. Took 13 hours (11 hrs of moving time). Tough day, but saw sun rise and sun set from the first and last peak.

Park in the AT/Jacobs Ladder lot on Route 8 & 20, then use the blue connector trail to avoid walking along the road to the AT. Beautiful rolling trail through the woods, fairly easy grades. LOTS of mud currently (mid-Oct). It was a wet day with low cloud; views of the lake were only available once we were right on top of it.

A great hike not too strenuous. Unfortunately, Greylock was socked in so we didn’t get to enjoy the views.

Great hike. A good, challenging trail. Gets steep quickly; it isn't long before you see beautiful wildlife and waterfalls. Keep going up to Mt. Everett where you can catch some good views.

So much fun!

Me and my dog loved the place !

Beautiful trail. It was moderately busy but it is to be expected at the start of a holiday weekend. Loved being surrounded by all the history.

I if you’re looking for fairly easy hike with some very pretty scenery, I would definitely recommend this trail.My favorite spots are the pond and some small waterfalls running from the damn. We were hoping for more exercise or I would have given it 5 stars.

Gorgeous, well marked

Did the Wapack trail on Saturday. Nice steep climb and beautiful views!

Great place for a walk or trail run

Beautiful hike and great for kids and families.

It was a nice trek while camping in copake falls

Well maintained and well marked trails. We spent several hours there and only got to a few of the trails. Moderately challenging hikes. Nice staff. Looking forward to going back. Minimal bugs right now despite the recent rains.
