Lovely shortish loop. Some steep sections. I agree with another reviewer that the blue blazes were a bit sparse in sections. We had to backtrack once or twice to regain the trail.

I love this loop. It's local to me, so it's my go-to if I just want to get out for a quick hike. For a fairly short and easy loop it offers two nice lookouts with views of the Housatonic river below.
For a longer hike, park at the overnight lot and take the Mohawk trail up to Breadloaf and then follow the AT north to PineKnob.

Hiked the end of March, was a bit wet as expected and some snow in spots. The marking was a bit confusing in one area otherwise a nice hike.

Took Mohawk Trail to AT then over to the vistas on Pine Knob. Great, moderate hike. Awesome views on a clear day!
