Mount Everett is located in the Town of Mount Washington in the southwestern corner of Massachusetts, bordering New York and Connecticut. With an elevation of 2,624 feet (795 meters), the summit of Mount Everett is the tallest mountain in the southern Berkshires. The Appalachian Trail traverses the summit. In addition to AT trail users, local residents and visitors hike to the summit for panoramic views, wildlife viewing, and the enjoyment of its natural setting. Extensive scientific studies have documented a unique and highly significant pitch pine natural community at the summit, including vegetation, lichen, moth, and other wildlife species unique and uncommon, including state-listed protected rare species. The summit is a portion of the 1,675-acre Mount Everett Reservation.
