Meet the Author

Frank and Victoria Logue hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in 1988. They have returned again and again to hike its many sections on day and overnight hikes. Frank served on the Appalachian Trail Conference Board of Managers. The Logues live in Georgia where Frank works as an Episcopal priest while Victoria writes. They both enjoy sharing their love of nature with their daughter, Griffin.

When he isn't writing about his experiences or delivering multi-media presentations to hiking or wildflower clubs, Leonard Adkins is hiking. In fact, this Fincastle, Virginia resident has explored over 16,000 miles of wilderness throughout North America, Europe, and the Caribbean. He is a board member for the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club, which helps maintain a section of the trail in that area. As an Appalachian Trail Natural Heritage Monitor, he helps the Appalachian Trail Conference and the National Park Service oversee the welfare of wild and endangered plants.

The Best of the Appalachian Trail Day Hikes, 2nd

The goal of this day hike is to reach the summit of Mount Everett, Massachusetts' ninth highest mountain, where you will have a commanding view of the Taconic and Berkshire Ranges, the Housatonic River Valley, and the distant Catskills. You will pass by a number of waterfalls on the Race Brook Trail as you make your way up to the A.T. The highest fall is nearly 100 feet tall.

The Hike
From the trailhead on Massachusetts 41, hike west on the blue-blazed Race Brook Falls Trail. In .25 mile, the gradual ascent will get steeper as you climb up out of the valley. At mile1, there is a fine view of the Housatonic Valley, and at mile 2, reach a designated campsite with a privy and platforms for tents. In another .4 mile, reach the junction with the A.T. Turn right on the A.T. and begin climbing the south side of Mount Everett. After a .75-mile rocky and often steep climb, you will reach the open summit of Mount Everett. Return via the Appalachian and Race Brook Falls Trails to the trailhead on Massachusetts 41.
