Group Hike on the Rivulet Trail
July 30th @ 10 am to 2 pm with options to hike other trails on site
207 Bryant Road, Cummington, MA  01026

Parking is at the Barn at The William Cullen Bryant Homestead.

Hike Rating: Easy

Join us at the William Cullen Bryant Homestead to hike the Rivulet Trail and Pine Loop, a certified Old Growth Forest.  Be enamored at the giant old growth trees including a 102.4 foot black cherry, the second tallest of it’s species known on Massachusetts.  This is an old growth mature forest dominated by beech, maple and hemlock trees over pine and birch.  Most trees here are at maximum heights possible during their life span.  This forest was saved and preserved by the poet William Cullen Bryant.  The Rivulet loop is just one mile, however hours are spent looking at the amazing trees in this forest as Rivulet Brook winds its way through.  Part two of the hike will be a walk through the Sugar Bush Trail, with a short flat hike to the old Sugar House ruins and then out to old Trow Road, a dirt road lined with more ancient maples and on to Bryant Cemetery.  The Group will go back to the parking area after the Rivulet Trail and then have the option to continue on part two to the Sugar Bush, Trow Road and Bryant Cemetery.
