Massachusetts, United States
Mount Everett, 2,624 ft (800 m), is the highest peak in the south Taconic Mountains of Massachusetts. The mountain is known for its expansive views of the southern Taconics and Berkshires; for its fragile ecosystem of old growth pitch pine and scrub oak; and for its rare plant and animal communities. Several trails cross the mountain, including the 2140 miles Appalachian Trail.
Guilder Pond, a highland lake, is located in the cirque-like ravine between Mount Everett and Undine Mountain to the north; Race Brook Falls, a popular waterfall, cascades from a common ledge between Mount Everett and Mount Race to the south. A seasonal auto road climbs to just short of the summit.
The summit and west side of Mount Everett is located in the town of Mount Washington; the east slopes are located in Sheffield, Massachusetts. Much of the mountain is located within the Mount Everett State Reservation; other parcels are part of Mount Washington State Forest or conservation easements.
The east side of the mountain drains into Race Brook, thence into Schenob Brook, the Hubbard Brook, the Housatonic River, and Long Island Sound. The west side drains into Guilder Brook and City Brook, thence into Bash Bish Brook, the Roeliff Jansen Kill, the Hudson river and Long Island Sound.
