“This is a beautiful loop to hit the highest peak in Massachusetts.”— Ben Rosenberg
Family Friendly While the distance and pitch may be a little steep for younger kids, the trails are very safe and well maintained.
Once you are done taking in the views at the peak, and have taken enough selfies, follow signs for the Appalachian Trail S, which can be found by the TV antenna at the summit. After about 10 minutes you'll see the signs for the Gould Trail. Follow the clearly marked trail on your way back down the mountain.
After you arrive at the Gould Trail trailhead parking lot there's a small cutout in the wooden fence to your left. There are no signs, but you need to take that path to return to the Bellows Pipe Trail parking lot.
