Huntington State Forest Roaring Brook Trail

🥾Huntington State Forest on Roaring Brook Trail with hike leaders Karen, Kim and Lyle. This old DCR forgotten forest has approx. 8 miles of trails covering Horse Hill and Deer Hill. We hiked and explored 4 miles of the West side, parking at the end of Sampson Road, first trail thru the gate on right takes you along Roaring Brook, other trail which is continuation of Sampson Road into the State Forest takes you on the East side. Ran into my good friend and fellow Hilltown lover Jeff Penn. Discussed starting a Stonewall Preservation act to preserve our Hilltown History. Remember to carry out what you take in and keep our Hilltowns beautiful!🥾 UPDATE Mill on roaring brook is Lyman saw mill and clothing mill

Gator Arch at the Keystone Arch Bridges Trail in Chester

Bridge 2: 55 feet above the river; abandoned; property of CSX. This is the only surviving bridge on which the ringstones have pointed tops, rather than a circular contour. It is the most endangered arch, because it has no chance of restoration due to it’s ownership and location across the mainline. Sometimes referred to as the Gator Tail’ or the ‘Orphan’ Arch. This bridge shows the most significant structural deterioration of any. Keystone Arch Bridges Trail. This arch lies also on Section #3 of Unkamit’s Path #hikethehilltowns with the #westernmasshilltownhikers #hilltownhistory
