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.

HikingClosedPrivate property

UPDATE: THIS HIKE ROUTE HAS BEEN REVISED TO SHOW THE CORRECT CURRENT ROUTE. MY REVIEW BELOW WAS FOR AN EARLIER VERSION THAT CONTAINED CLOSED/PRIVATE/INACCESSIBLE PATHS. This approach to Sages Ravine does not exist. There is no public road to the trailhead as depicted on the map, and the first part of this hike crosses private property marked with a closed gate and keep out signs. According to all other guides and trail maps I've seen for Sages Ravine, there is another trailhead a little further south at the MA/CT border, where you can follow a different, longer out-and-back route into the Ravine (I did not take that hike today, but I have hiked another part of the Ravine on a different occasion and it's quite beautiful).

Beautiful hike. The directions from the app took us to the Mt Fissell trailhead on Mt Washington Rd instead of this loop. We were still able to access Sage’s Ravine from where we were using the access trails and getting onto the AT. From the incorrect location, it was a little more than a 3 mile out and back hike with a decent there and a climb back. The ravine was cool even on a hot day. Very quiet and serene.
