The Rangers rerouted the trail around the steep rocky area at the start of the trail. The trail both ways is very well marked with NYS trail markers and it’s easy to find your way in and out.
Great hike have done it many times. Bit steep and rocky washed out road at start but levels off. lean-to usually occupied.

Hi Phil - thanks for asking. here’s more info: Yes, the entrance (with lots of parking) is at the NE Metro Voc Tech. (I forgot to add that.) Let’s say 2:00. According to GayOutdoors it would be easy (“Little or no physical challenge involved. This level of hiking includes 2-4 miles, usually covering terrain that moderately rises and falls with hikes on unpaved trails as well as paved or gravel surfaces) It’s not dead flat - there are small hills, but nothing big (a few hills raising
What is the difficulty level? Do we park at the NE Metro Ctr lot? What time does event begin. Thanks. Phil

If you are scheduling the trip ..... let me know. I'm interested in pooling from Chicopee as I am unfamiiliar with this park. I also need to let my regular Sunday friend know I will be busy.
I am totally keen on joining but can’t due to prior plans. Thanks for posting an event within easy reach of Hartford. I would be happy to look around for other events nearby. Appreciate the effort, keep in touch.

This is an awesome idea. Unfortunately, I work weekends and cannot attend but I am open to a hike during the week if it's possible. I'm up in the Clinch/Cumberland Gap area so if that is an option for some, let's make a plan.
Chatt is a nice town to visit, but is distant for me on a Saturday. Shout at me if you hike/camp in the Waynesville or Sylva NC area. Smokey Mtn Nat'l is nice. Peace, Markus

Hi, this looks good- close to Boston. Maybe we could stop for breakfast at the Irontown Diner?- I have never been, but always like exploring new diners! Steve
If you look at the contour lines on the map, you'll see that there isn't much elevation on most of the Breakheart trails, and least of all on the trails right around the lakes, unless you go off to a side trail such as Eagle Rock trail, which goes up about 200 feet. https://www.mass.gov/doc/breakheart-trail-map/download
