    Trisha G reviewed Mountain Meadow Preserve Trail

    11 days ago

    The trail is nicely maintained and marked, and there are some very nice views at the top of the meadow as well as interesting trees and whatnot in the wooded areas. The recent rain made parts of the trail particularly wet for our outing today, but it was not terrible. There is ample parking (Williamstown Side on Mason Road), which is always a plus.

    A lot of this trail is made from runoff streams, which made it particularly soggy and buggy today after all the rain that we've gotten lately! There are some areas that are strictly rock ledges, so be sure to have appropriate footwear. The overlook is beautiful yet small - and the mix of terrain made for an enjoyable hike, although not one of my favorites.

    Trisha G reviewed Bradley Farm Interpretive Trail

    about 1 month ago

    The interpretive portion of this hike was nicely done & very educational. The trail itself is well-trodden but is becoming a bit encroached upon by undergrowth along the sides of the trail (it's not terrible; just watch out for prickers!). Unlike other Greylock hikes, there's not an amazing view or other particularly interesting scenery.

    A great walk through the woods to a terrific waterfall. There was a bit of foot traffic, but nothing to dampen the enjoyment (and everyone was very friendly). Finding the trailhead was definitely easier thanks to the advice from Sarah Coelho (it is not well marked at the YMCA).

    I'm afraid I can only rate this as an "eh." We came across some really badly-maintained areas, and the trail map doesn't really reflect the trail system once you get in there. I've been on worse, but I've also been on better.

    The trail markings could be better & part of the blue trail is in terrible shape, but overall it's a nice walk to a beautiful feature. I definitely call this a nature walk vs. a hike given the length, terrain, and limited elevation gain.

    Even with wet weather, we greatly enjoyed rambling through the woods of Ferncliff Forest, taking all the little side trails and switch-backs. The trails are very well marked & maintained, and the map is accurate.

    Trisha G reviewed Chesterfield Gorge State Wayside Trail

    4 months ago

    This was the perfect way to stretch our legs while traveling home to Upstate NY from Laconia, NH (and there were a lot of picnic tables to use for our lunch break, too). The trail was well marked, and the gorge is beautiful. It's pretty steep in some places, but absolutely not a problem given the length of the trail. . . that's why I've recorded it as a "Nature Trip" vs. hiking (I don't think it truly qualifies for the latter).

    What a great trail! It's very well marked (and the maps at the trailhead are accurate & detailed) - and the trail is well maintained.

    Trisha G reviewed Laura's Tower Trail

    4 months ago

    A nice hike through the woods with a payoff at the top (the view from the tower really is nice). The trails are pretty well marked & nicely maintained & we found ourselves to be the only ones trekking this particular route today!

    Trisha G reviewed Ice Glen Trail

    4 months ago

    We took the time to wander over to Ice Glen while hiking up to Laura's Tower. It was quick, buggy, and somewhat anti-climactic, although we did think it was cool (pun intended!) to see ice in late May.

    Trisha G reviewed The Mile-Around Woods

    4 months ago

    The walk in is beautiful & we enjoyed the well-kept, wide trail (including some very interesting rock features). I do not agree with the last post about the trails being well marked, though. There's one map at the trailhead but no markers throughout the walk (and there are some other side trails off the main trail, which aren't included in that trailhead map).

    Trisha G reviewed Alford Springs Reservation

    4 months ago

    The parking lot is large enough to fit four or five vehicles, which was a nice surprise. The trails are in need of some spring maintenance (lots of downed trees), but overall they are well-kept. There is one scenic viewpoint (which is beautiful), and a few water features -- otherwise, it's a hike through the woods with some short yet fairly steep climbs and descents. I was disappointed to see how many people let their dogs do their business on the trail without taking the time to clean up after them.

    This is a short hike with lots of steep spots scattered throughout (nothing terrible). The trail markings are sad, but the rock features and view at the top are worth it.

    Trisha G reviewed Aspinwall Loop Trail

    5 months ago

    Kennedy Park is much more than I expected. There are a ton of trails (all well maintained); the Aspinwall offers some nice views and a lot of little critters scurrying about. Some of the trail markers are less than great, but overall it's a terrific spot to explore & enjoy nature.

    Trisha G reviewed Peebles Island Perimeter Trail

    11 months ago

    The trails (there are others in addition to the perimeter trail) are well maintained, and there are a few picnic tables scattered here-and-there as well as a few areas that have been cleared so that visitors have a better view of the water. The kids and I saw several birds, chipmunks, squirrels, and about six white tail deer (two group of which were no more than 100 feet from us). The terrain is mostly flat, with only a few areas of limited steep(ish) climbing before reaching another flat area.

    Trisha G reviewed Bash Bish Falls Trail

    about 1 year ago

    We actually came in from the Copake Iron Works site @ Taconic State Park (1/2-mile trail brought us over to the NY trailhead for Bash Bish Falls). The trail from the Iron Works is well-marked, scenic (mostly following the Bash Bish River), and includes a few interesting history-related placards. The trail up to the falls was extraordinarily busy, but it's very wide & includes plenty of room for everyone who's making the trek up and back. Many of the visitors were taking advantage of benches that are placed along the river, enjoying the view even before reaching the falls.

    There really is nothing spectacular about this trail - it's more or less a connector. I will say that on the plus side, it's well marked.
