Tough trail in spots - especially the climb up Mt Everett from the south. Beautiful scenery that is always changing during the hike. Sages ravine was especially beautiful.

A very senic, challenging and rewarding seciton of the trail. While the elevations do not appear to be very intimidating, the grades involved make this very challenging. Do not underestimate this section of the trail.

Such an awesome section of the AT! So many good views! I hiked from Great Falls at Falls Village, to Sheffield Rd.

I've gone twice already and loved the views once I got to the top. Highest peak in CT. I just started my hiking journey and loved this challenge. Being that it was difficult, I can't go back and do any easy trails.. Everything from here on out must be a moderate to hard trail.. I love the outdoors and can't wait for my next adventure!

My wife and I took the dog for the 5.6 mile out-and-back hike from the AT parking lot on Under Mountain Road/Rt. 41 in Salisbury to the Lion's Head peak. It was a beautiful day and a walk that got the heart pumping with lots of elevation gain. There were two challenges. First, there was a fresh load of very slippery dry oak leaves covering much of the trail. SLIPPERY is the key word. Also, the blazes were sometimes few and far between, an especially challenging wrinkle when the trail itself is covered. In spite of that, the view form Lion's Head is worth every slip, near-trip, and sweat drop. Take a few hours, pack a sandwich, and go for it!

When we did this, we went SoBo. This is a great section. From Salisbury to Rt. 7/112 is a very easy section with a few uphills. We took our youngest son who has very little hiking experience and he blew through it. The section past Rt. 7/112 isn't difficult, it is just a lot of ups and downs, so if you take this route, be prepared for that. I would recommend from Salisbury to Falls Village though.
