Phelon Memorial Forest in Granville, two trailheads on North Lane take you to the summit of Blueberry Hill with long views to Russell, Sweetman Mountain, Mount Tom and the Holyoke Range. Perched up above Cobble Mountain Reservoir the trails here are spectacular for bird watching and is a popular hawk watch destination. More than 1,000 acres are conserved by the New England Forestry Foundation. Phelon is the result of two separate donations made by Mr. Douglas M. Rice and Mr. Russell E. Phelon between 1973 and 1984. The donors wanted to have the forest remain productive while also maintaining a blueberry crop on a portion of the property. support the Hilltown Hikers become a member!
