GPS Location: 42.13930 -72.86762 Trailhead Hike Rating: Easy to Moderate 4 mile loop plus options

Noble View Outdoor Center’s 358.5 acres of rural solitude maintain the ambiance of the original 1800s New England Farmstead. A quiet, pristine mountaintop location offers breathtaking views of the Pioneer Valley. Beautiful trails wind through woodlands and abandoned farm fields, passing brooks, stone walls, cellar holes, and diverse habitats. The surrounding 117,000 acres of forest, rivers, and streams are Watershed Property. Noble View*s forest was once a prosperous farm, part of an agricultural early settler community. Come experience Russell with us!

Plan for four miles with options for more/less depending on weather (snow will determine how far we go).  We will hike to the large vista overlooking the Pioneer Valley, Pitcher Waterfalls and the newest vista the Blackburn Mountain Garden!

Meet in the first parking lot right at the entrance at 635 S Quarter Road, Russell 01071 Hike will start there at the Border Trail (yellow blazed) trailhead at 10 am.  We hike rain or shine!

Park at the LARGE parking lot up the road from the entrance on your right at 635 S Quarter Road, Russell 01071, we will shuttle hikers from the parking lot to the trailhead or you can walk its just an 1/8th of a mile.  Note: there is a small parking lot at the trailhead but we will not all fit! Plan for three hours hike time.
