Great for kids and dogs, not too much traffic. Had a 4, 6, 10 and 11 year old. Challenging but not too difficult for the little ones but interesting for the older kids.

Beautiful views, very quiet and peaceful. Wonderful for young children to enjoy

This is a nice trail through the forest, especially during foliage season. The first 2/3 are very easy flat walking, the last third up to the summit is a bit steep and very rocky. The views are nice from the top but somewhat hindered by the trees below that have grown quite tall.
The trail is well marked, but the trail head is hard to find: in New Marlborough take North Road on the right of the church until you turn left onto Old North Road and find the parking lot and trail head 100 yards down the road.

Parked at the Jug End Road trail head and hiked to the Mt Everett Summit. Loved this trail! Fantastic trail variation kept us interested and the many open vistas offered natural points to stop and catch your breath. We hiked up to the summit of Mt Everett first and then caught the loop around Guilder Pond back to the AT. Headed north to get back to our car. Finished about 10 miles in just over five hours. Would absolutely do this hike again!

Lovely walking, although parts of the trail aren't kept up well, but the view from the "look out point" is excellent. About two miles near the end of the trail is on a road, which was a nice respite from the brush and bugs.

good hike for fitness. beautiful look out and had lunch at the pond. people were eating lunch and swimming. came across a rattle snake on the way back down....made excellent time back to the car following that!
