Located approximately 1.5 miles south of the center of Williamstown on Routes 2 & 7 at a gravel driveway marking the entrance to Sheep Hill and the WRLF headquarters, the former Rosenburg Farm. These trails offers dramatic views of the valley and surrounding mountains. Sheep Hill formerly hosted a family farm and ski area for the town and Williams College. Two short walks traverse the hillside meadow, providing a pleasant way to enjoy viewing the dramatic scenery and diverse flora and fauna. Both trails begin from the cluster of old farm buildings. Rosenburg Ramble begins north of the barns, looping around the entire property for approximately 1- 1/2 miles. Several parking areas are situated at the top of the hillside where the panoramic views of the Greylock range are dramatic in all seasons and are accessible from Bee Hill Road. The Rosenburg Ramble terminates south of the farm buildings, where the Meadow Walk begins. The Meadow Walk is a short, easy way to enjoy the views of Sheep Hill, and loops around the pond at the foot of the hillside.
