Burbank Trail Loop - Lenox MA

TRAIL DESCRIPTION:

The Burbank Trail is a 3.2 mile loop that is good for hiking, biking and running.  Footing is generally good.   On your route, you will pass the remains of the 1850s Gorman homestead.  Monks Pond is a beautiful place to take a break.   The trail leaving the Southwest side of the Pond that heads back to Olivia's Overlook is a narrow path that is very well maintained.  Really fun loop to bike or run!

Expert GPS exaggerates the elevation profile a bit.  The actual elevation gain for the whole loop is about 540 feet, which, is substantial, but not horrendous.
