We will follow Unkamit’s Path, a white-blazed scenic trail which includes the top of Round Top Hill, a grassy open summit with spectacular 360-degree views, the highest point in Hampden County: elevation 1,780 feet, 5th highest in Massachusetts. This hike has 400-foot elevation gains to the summit, be prepared for uphill climbing.
Meet at the entrance of Griffin Brook Road parking lot in the Chester Blandford State Forest, off of Round Hill Road. Take Route 20 or Route 23 to Blandford Road in Chester (do not take Round Hill Road from route 20) turn onto Round Hill Road (at Blandford Town Line), take a left at the cemetery, then first right into the parking lot. You may park in front of the cemetery as well. Plan for two hours to complete the loop. The trail is easily traveled and well-marked. Be prepared for mud. Weather depending, bring walking sticks and spikes. There are no facilities at the trail. Dogs are welcome! Donations are welcome!
