The Wachusett Redline hike is a 17.6 mile hike that completes all trails on the Mountain (not including the roads). The route presented involves over 4,000 vertical feet of hiking, and is normally done in between 7.5 and 10 hours. This hike can be done in a single day or over multiple days. A four-day version of the hike is shown below.
The map and steps documents provided below show one way to complete the redline walk in a single day, minimizing the number of redundant steps and arriving back at the starting point. The table shows a way to do it in four days, with four hikes that start and end at the same place.
