Perpendicular Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This loop takes you up almost vertically from the shore of Long Pond, along a series of spectacular stone steps on the Perpendicular Trail, and down the Mansell Mountain Trail. One of the two summits making up what’s known collectively as Western Mountain, the 949-foot Mansell is wooded, but two overlooks on this hike provide good views."
