Western Mass Hilltown Hikers was created for people who love the outdoors to get out and discover new destinations for outdoor recreation. Our goal is to bring awareness of the landscape, history and wildlife the Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts have to offer and promote those natural assets to boost tourism and economic development to the area while still keeping our open spaces natural.
Western Mass Hilltown Hikers was created for those who love the outdoors as much as we do, to get together and get out there! We were once three friends who hiked every weekend to a different destination, each week more friends joined us, then friends of friends and so here we are today, a group of over 1,500 members, over 1,000 in the Facebook Group and 5,000 followers on our Social Media platforms. Yes! we Tweet the Hilltowns as well. Each month we lead a publicly advertised group hike, always free and no registration required (except during COVID), open to everyone including dogs.
We want to hear from you! Do you have a great hiking destination? Historical location? Are you a landowner looking to 61B your property with trails and open it up to hikers? Email us at email@example.com
I invite you all to post on all our social media your adventures whether it be hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing. kayaking or mountain biking. Let others know your idea for a hike or share your favorite trail. Post your beautiful pictures and videos! If you are looking to get out there and you need someone to come along…. you can network on our social media. We use hashtags to find our adventures all over the internet, #westernmasshilltownhikers and #hikethehilltowns
I have discovered that there are many of you out there that want to get outdoors to a waterfall or climb a mountain and need a partner to do it with or simply want to enjoy our pictures and videos. I invite you to all come out to the Hilltowns of Western Mass to see and enjoy our natural beauty! Liz
