Overview

We will hike the Mahican-Mohawk Trail over Todd and Clark Mountains (at elevations 1,711 and 1,920 ft, respectively). The terrain is moderate for much of hike, but, for about 1 mile, the trail climbs very steeply to the top Todd Mountain (about 800 feet of elevation gain). The section of trail that runs along crest of the Todd-Clark mountain ridge is believed to run directly along the original Native American travel corridor that ran between the Connecticut and Hudson River Valleys. The hike is rated as strenuous because of the climb up Todd Mountain. The pace will be about 1.5-2.0 miles per hour on average and is geared towards intermediate level hikers. Hiking distance is about 7.5 miles. Depending on snow or ice conditions, snow shoes and/or microspikes may be required. If there is a lot of snow or ice, the hike may be shortened or modified. The hike is a one-way hike and involves a car shuttle. The hike is a joint hike with the Berkshire Chapter.
