What a great park with many walking trails! We enjoyed a not-too-long walk to the lookout tower that offered a great panoramic view of the rolling surrounding hills! Free parking during the off season.

I was first struck but the excellent road conditions throughout the reservation. Wish all Mass roads were so fine. Outstanding views of the Pioneer Valley abound in this destination. Drove in from the East Hampton entrance and ended up in Northampton. Well worth the trip.

There are many trails to take, they are well marked with paint on the trees and signs too. Some have great views, some are all in the trees. Many levels of difficulty as well. There are lookout towers you can go up in too.
