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. Plan for four miles with options for more depending on weather. We will hike to the large vista overlooking the Pioneer Valley.
