The New England National Scenic Trail (NET) is a 215-mile trail route that has been in existence for over half a century. Its two branches travel through 39 communities in Connecticut and Massachusetts. The NET is comprised primarily of the historic Mattabesett, Metacomet, and Monadnock (M-M-M) Trails.

The route showcases classic New England landscape features: long distance vistas with rural towns as a backdrop, agrarian lands, un-fragmented forests, and large river valleys. The trail also travels through important Native American and colonial historical landmarks and highlights a range of diverse ecosystems and natural resources: trap-rock ridges, mountain summits, forested glades, vernal pools, lakes, streams and waterfalls.

The principal steward for the trail in Massachusetts is the Berkshire Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club.
