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.

Great!!! Not as in shape as I thought I was, so I had a tough time, but so worth it!!! Drink lots of water! And have a good pair of supportive hiking boots- my trail sneakers were NOT GOOD!
