Descend from Stony Ledge (Sperry Road) down the old Stony Ledge Ski Trail (which may be accessible for skiing in the winter... google it!). Return via Stony Ledge Trail or via Roaring Brook Trail to Sperry Road.

Stony Ledge Trail is accessed from the Roaring Brook Trail off Roaring Brook Road in Williamstown. This trail is decent little workout with 1,460 foot elevation gain in under 2 miles - no scrambling, just (steep) slope. The real treat at the top is the panoramic view at Stony Ledge - looking 1,000 feet down into the Hopper valley, across to Mount Greylock summit, and north into Vermont - a view of the mountain from the mountain. It was originally cut as a ski/foot trail in the 1930s by the CCC, but long since then it would be a challenge to try and ski it today.

For hiking, nothing too special. Steep rocky descent. Probably more fun to ski it!
