About


Massaemett Mountain
Shelburne, MA

Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below.

Almost a mirror image, but not quite

Recovering from a bad cold, I decided to try out my lungs during lunch. While I'm certainly still sick, I was able to make it up Massaemett nonstop without too much protesting in the form of coughing or wheezing.

This was most likely the last "late fall" hike of the season, as a one to two foot storm was set to hit later that night and cover the ground with more than the 1-4 inches that had been down thus far.

The weather was overcast with temperatures in the mid to upper teens. The trail still had an inch or two of snow on it with some isolated glaciers.
