Hike Rating: Easy with some slopes Approx. 5 miles total with several loops
The 645 acres of The Boulders provide more than six miles of trails plus the dramatic boulders that give the area its name and offer a vista to the west. There are four blazed trails through hemlock forest, wetlands. This property is located within the city limits of Pittsfield, yet when you are on the trails it doesn’t seem that way. The land use history of this property has resulted in diverse forests including large and old trees.
The trail is wide in most places and sometimes rocky; road gently climbs upward on the summit section. Be prepared for ice, snow and mud; bring walking sticks and spikes. Meet in the Dalton Avenue trailhead parking lot on Route 8, across (and slightly to the right) of the Hubbard Avenue intersection. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org. Plan for two hours hike time. Full hike details go to westernmasshilltownhikers.com or see their facebook page. Maps and bottled water will be provided. Please be aware that there are no facilities at the trail. Dogs are welcome! No registration required, hike is free, donations are welcome!
