A beautiful place to view fall foliage, Clarksburg State Park offers 368 acres of abundant and unspoiled northern hardwood forest with breathtaking views of the Hoosac Range, Mount Greylock and the Green Mountains. Mauserts Pond has a landscaped day-use area featuring picnicking, and a pavilion area. The pond is surrounded by 9.5 miles of foot trails along which visitors may observe a variety of wildlife, and perhaps a moose. The 3 mile Pond Loop Trail is popular with birdwatchers, and the very easy Shoreline Trail has beautiful water views. 45 well-spaced and wooded campsites are located near the lake, featuring a modern comfort station with showers. NOTE: Customers looking to boat or swim in Mauserts Pond should be aware the surface of the pond does show evidence of weeds.

everything I want in a hike as a 50 something semi-in-shape nature lover: babbling water, well marked but unpaved trail, beautiful scenery and doesn't take the whole day to complete. uphill, with rocks and roots but manageable for me. challenging but enjoyable and beautiful.

One of our families favorites!

Beautiful falls.

Not one of the more scenic sections of the AT, but it's a good climb up to the VT border, with a challenging stretch about 2.5 miles up that's strewn with boulders and rocks. This is very steep, so the "Bad Weather trail" serves as a bypass when conditions are too wet and unsafe.

For those section hikers, the parking for this is at Greylock Community Club on Rt. 2, not where the trail directions take your GPS...that's private residences. Free water, but not parking.
