HikingGreat!

Sage’s ravine is a special place. Numerous waterfalls and the trail runs right along the raging water. Good anytime of year. Continue to Mount Race for a thrilling hike along the ridge line with steep drop offs down to the valley below. Stunning views of Northwestern Connecticut and Southwestern Massachusetts.

Love! Humans should know you have to cross Sages Ravine twice. Four times if you hike with my mom. She first crossed at the bridge to the campsite then thought campsite blue markers was not part of the trail so back across and into the ravine we go because the "bridge" was super slippery. Blue markers IS part of the trail if you take the loop clockwise. So we went counterclockwise and then had to cross the ravine again this time very deep and COLD! Then we were on the side of Laurel Ridge which is aptly named because it was like a forest of Mountain Laurels. You take a sharp left after a little stream which brings you back down to the campground and across and into the ravine again. So pretty waterfalls from every direction entering the ravine, old growth trees, ferns and cool geology.

Connected to the AT then looped back via Sage's Campground. AT trail read nice singletrack along the river. Had to take shoes off to cross river which was invigorating but cold. Sage's Ravine was a nice singletrack trail back. Not very hilly or technical overall.

HikingGreat!

Trail is not closed, and the AT provides an idyllic descent along a pretty stream with multiple waterfalls between 1 and 10 feet; more falls to the right on the descent. Not hard, but a few steep descents near the bottom. You will need to pick your way across the stream to make a loop.

Wonderful hike, not strenuous. The brook was running strong due to recent rains. The falls and many pools were beautiful. Great family outing.

Went this way up to Bear Mt. A nice easy walk until you head out of the ravine and up the actual Mt. Ended up with a 5 mile loop.

Arrived to find signage stating the trail is closed. It’s possible I was starting from a secondary trailhead. Kiosk looked newly built but the trail appeared overgrown.

Nice, but waterfall is a stream. Still a beautiful hike, and quiet. Dirt road for about 20 minutes to get to trail.

This was a nice trail, but it didn’t really have a “wow” factor to it. We went early, so it was quiet until the end when several groups passed us as they entered. It was a nice walk, but I’m not in a rush to go back. Bring the bug spray!

Very buggy. Basically a walk through a campsite with a small stream. Not what we expected.

This was a connector hike to two previous hikes I had already done( Everett/Race and Bear/Lions Head). Parked on Mt. Washington Rd and hiked down into Sages Ravine and up Mount Race on May 9, 2020. It was more of a winter hike considering the fresh 2” of snow near the summit and the 25 degree temps and 35-40mph sustained winds and I wouldn’t of wanted it any other way. Sages Ravine is probably one of the more scenic waterfall sections of trail that I’ve been on in CT/Mass. I inadvertently did the loop due to the fact that I followed the footsteps in the snow of the hiker previous to me. I ended up crossing the stream at a log bridge that brought me to a blue blazed section of trail. Continuing on up to Mount Race I was surprised when the trail kicked out to a precariously narrow, exposed half mile ridge walk that with a vertigo inducing 1000’ cliff drop directly to the side the entire length. However, this feature allowed for 180 degree panoramic views of the rolling topography that stretched many miles into mass/CT and New York’s Catskill region. These were the best views I’ve seen on any hike in this area hands down. Despite the high winds, intermittent snow squalls and cold temps, I sat and admired the beauty for quite awhile watching the weather change literally by the minute. Turned back down the fairly mellow descent of Mount Race back towards Sages Ravine and decided I might as well ascend Bear Mountain. All said, I was very impressed with Mount Race and Sages Ravine and will do this hike again.

Lovely little hike! Couldn’t finish the loop bc spring melt/rain made the stream impossible to pass without wading through some water, but I added a side trip to Bear Mountain and it was incredibly beautiful. No cars in the lot! Signs posted say no camping, but otherwise the AT looks to be open, and this part was deserted.

A lot of spring melt flowing right into the trail. Wear waterproof shoes.
