About The Event

Take an exploratory hike with Reach Your Summit and Berlin Land Trust on the historic New England Trail (Metacomet Trail) and Alice Fern Bruce Preserve to the breathtaking overlook of North Lamentation Mountain. The hike begins off a trailhead parking area and quickly climbs away through roots, rocks and forest to the peak and overlook view highlighting Rattlesnake Mountain and the Metacomet Ridge to the north (depending on seasonal conditions). We will then continue north on the New England Trail along the traprock ridge before dropping back down to complete a loop back to our parked cars.

The 2.4 mile lollipop loop hike is open to all and is suitable for beginner's looking to hike for the first time (though you may find it challenging in some spots if you are new to hiking), intermediates who like rewarding views or individuals looking to get out and enjoy fall in New England. There is no cost to attend this special, free event. Space is limited. RSVP is required. Waiver/Assumption of Risk documents will be on hand to sign.
