Park
“An 11 mile path that is mostly flat and paved. Great for a stroll, a bike ride, running or rollerblading! Take a left out of the driveway and head north on Old State Rd about 3/4 of a mile, where the rail trail crosses the road. A right will take you to the start of the trail, about two miles, and a left will take you about 9 miles North if you follow it all the way! Beautiful mountain and water views. You'll' go by the spot where the photo on the front of this book was taken ;)”

“The closest thing we have to a beach in Williamstown. It is a public, cold spring-fed pond. Cool on a hot summer day. Good for a family picnic. Bring bug spray.”

“Easy-to-walk trails through fields, woods, sculpture gardens, and a pond (watch out for geese!). Awesome views of Mt. Greylock to the east.”
