Local Trails: Mount Hope Farm

 

Hiking path

My mom and I hiked this trail on a glorious autumn day and it is now our favorite hiking spot! Located on the Mount Hope Farm property off Rt 43 in Williamstown, MA, Mount Hope Farm is the site of several trail heads to the Mt. Greylock Reservation. Follow the old farm road lined with trees past the fields and follow signs to your destination. Don’t forget to grab a trail map on your way in! We have found the Money Brook Trail to be the most enjoyable and picturesque. It follows a babbling stream and is an easy hike. But you can enjoy longer hikes up the mountain like the Stony Ledge hike that ends at a look out point in the Mt. Greylock campground area. There are many options for hour long or day hikes.

Hiking is a wonderful way to get exercise and enjoy the outdoors no matter what the season. So, get out there and hike this summer!
