This rugged route passes along the bottom of Race Brook Falls, then climbs through beautiful forest to a scenic lookout beyond the summit of Mount Everett.
An easy walk leads to a spectacular payoff: Bash Bish Falls — Massachusetts’ highest waterfall.
A stunningly scenic hike with fantastic views of the wide valley below and distant mountain ranges. Brace’s summit is especially magical at sunset.
This is a great hike if you crave solitude among mountain laurel and pitch pines, as well as interesting geology — but also enjoy solid scenic views!
The parking area is the same lot used by visitors to Bash Bish Falls.
