Hiking

No peer pressure, but everybody’s doing it. Hiking, that is, in Hampshire County.

That’s because the trails are just that easy to find. Drive ten minutes in any direction to get lost in thought in the woods (not lost in the woods). Whether you’re a novice with a walking stick or a pro with trekking poles, we’ve got trails just right for your speed.

Traipse across easygoing hikes at the Chesterfield Gorge or at the Quabbin Reservoir in Ware and Belchertown. Or traverse our many peaks, including Mount Tom, Mount Holyoke and the Seven Sisters. Consider jumping on the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail (M&M Trail) that passes through Hampshire County from the Berkshires. And the views? Well, come see for yourself.
