In the extreme southwest corner of Massachusetts
is a cluster of parks particularly notable for their spectacular
scenery and breathtaking views. The 1,100 acre Mount Everett State
Reservation in the town of Mount Washington , offers informal picnicking
at Guilder Pond (the highest freshwater pond in Massachusetts ).
An approximate 1.5 mile road (currently closed
to vehicular traffic but open to foot traffic)
to the top of Mount Everett gives visitors access to a breathtaking
360-degree view spanning Massachusetts , New York and Connecticut
. The Appalachian Trail also winds its way
across the reservation.
Mount Everett State Reservation is located in the southernmost part
of western Massachusetts.
