"The hike: Although this is a relatively short trail, and less steep than the neighboring Perpendicular Trail, the Mansell Mountain Trail should not be underestimated. First described as part of a pre–Revolutionary War road, the Mansell Mountain Trail starts off by going up a wide but steep path through the woods. Switchbacks and blue blazes mark the way. By the time you reach the mountain’s exposed granite, the pitch is very steep. Highlights: Climb up wooded summit of 949-foot Mansell Mountain, with nearby overlook of Long Pond."
