Trail maintenance at Keystone Arch Bridges Trail…update to the trail where everyone goes straight and ends up on the railroad tracks..never hike on or near the tracks, remember follow the KAB blazes! #westernmasshilltownhikers
No lack of amazing views of Lee and the Catskills at today’s hike at Monterey Land Trust on Mt. Hunger Road and we only hiked half of it, saw bear claw up a tree and deer running freely by us #westernmasshilltownhikers
SPECIAL NOTE FOR THE HIKE! Saturday February 23rd
Hi all I want to make sure everyone knows the trail conditions….as of today Monday February 18th the trailhead received an additional 4″ of snow, this is on top of the 6″ or so we had on the ground of ice covered fall through with your boot kinda snow. The parking lot at Chester Blandford State Forest on Round Hill is NOT plowed, however the road to it, the Cemetary, Park Knox Road and additional parking areas are plowed, there is still plenty of room to park. Please look out for the signs of where to park, there are a few places just steps away from the trailhead.
When you enter Round Hill Road there will be a parking lot on your right, if you go up the road a bit further there will be parking at the Cemetary and also parking along the road to the right of the Cemetary, your GPS will read Park Knox Road, you can park along there as well. The trailhead is to the left of the Cemetary. Please wear spikes or snowshoes and bring poles or going will be tough! This is a solid 2 hour in and back hike with no snow/ice on the ground, trail is a wide road and easy. Thanks for listening and hope to see you all Saturday!
