Wachusett Mountain Loop- My own version- 7 trails in total
Time: 4:23. I would say w/out the excessive stopping I did it to catch my breath it would be about 3.5 hrs.
Info: dogs are allowed on leashes.
Tip: BRING YOUR TRAIL MAP! Grab one free in the visitor’s center.
We began at the main visitor center parking lot and headed out on the Bicentennial Trail. This part of the trail was very easy…just a nice little stroll in the woods. Past the stone stairway that leads to the Pine Hill Trail (most direct very steep trail to the top). We kept going. We then accidently veered off the trail we meant to take and ended up taking a steeper route called Loop Trail…took a right onto Mountain House Trail straight to the summit. The Loop & Mountain House were pretty steep and always up hill. We then arrived at the summit. The summit had a few picnic tables and portable facilities. Also a small pond with some colorful fish to look at. It was a bit hazy view wise but I imagine it would have been really nice on a clear day.
