The Harrington Trail on Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, Massachusetts is a moderately challenging hike. The trail spans 2.92 miles and ascends 755 feet, offering a steady climb to the summit. The path is well-marked and traverses a variety of terrains, including rocky outcrops and dense forest. One of the trail's highlights is Echo Lake, a small body of water nestled at the base of the mountain. The trail also passes Balance Rock, a large boulder precariously perched on a ledge. As hikers approach the summit, they are rewarded with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Hikers should wear sturdy footwear due to the rocky terrain and bring plenty of water, especially during the summer months. The trail can be busy on weekends, so weekday hikes are recommended for those seeking solitude. Despite its challenges, the Harrington Trail offers a rewarding hike with diverse natural features and stunning views.
