Hopkins Memorial Forest
Williamstown, MA 01267
Williamstown is blessed with two major north-south hiking trails, the Appalachian Trail and the Taconic Crest Trail. Have you ever wished you could get from one trail to the other, so as to hike a complete “ring” around Williamstown? Maybe one day you can. Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation has announced plans to create a continuous “Ring Trail.” As a first step, WRLF is sponsoring, as part of its 2017 series of monthly guided hikes, the first “Williamstown Ring Hike Series,” taking place on five Saturdays this summer. Each segment of the “Ring Hike” follows established hiking trails that lead up and over Mt. Greylock, Berlin Mountain and East Mountain.
The 3rd hike in the ring series will be on Saturday July 15: Petersburg Pass to Hopkins Memorial Forest, via the Taconic Crest Trail and the Birch Brook Trail. Hikers meet at the Hopkins Forest parking lot off Northwest Hill Rd. at 9 am. and carpool to Petersburg Pass. Hike is moderate, approximately 5 miles.
