I took my 4 and 6 year old to Laura's Tower and the Ice Glen and they HAD A BLAST! It was definitely at the upper level of their ability (the vertical assent to the tower and the scramble to the glen took a lot out of them) but they said it was the best hike of their time in the Berkshires.

Magical trail with nice light rock scramble towards the end. Short, and ends a bit abruptly in someone's backyard.

This is a beautiful rather magical trail through the woods and rock formations.

Map is incorrect- you cannot go in a loop- runs into private property off Ice Glen Rd

I took my grandson here today. We both loved it. We enjoyed the rock scrambles, the icy air coming from the caves on this 90 degree day, and all the natural treasures we found along the way including coral mushrooms, a tree frog, and an elderberry borer beetle while other hikers were geocaching.

Beautiful! Keep an eye out for the blue spots for markers. Wonderful scramble. Moderate because of all the rocks but not too hard just lots of scrambling. Fun with three teens and a 40-ish person :)

Bonus - tons of extra frogs just around the railroad tracks for fun. :)

Ice Glen is a good hike for sure footed kids. Not a good hike if you're carrying kids. This is one of the only hikes our kids will gladly accompany us on.

I like the Ice Glen trail, but it's a little tough on our dog. We really like Laura's Tower which is accessible from the same parking lot. Today we kept going out past the tower, follow the yellow blazes, after you pass through a series of ravines you settle into a nice flat trail that takes you out to Bear Town State park, we walked out and back in about 2.5 hours. Today's weather was cool and you should get an early start, when it's hot/muggy the delta wings and mosquitos can be annoying.
