Ice Glen Trail

Share This Page

A clamber over, under and around giant boulders in a glacial ravine. The sides of the glen are covered with old stand pine and hemlock. The crags and crannies of the rocks are said to harbor ice and snow into the summer. At the north end of the glen is a flat rock face with an inscription from the donor, David Dudley Field. At the south end of the glen is reputedly the tallest pine in Massachusetts.

Directions:

After crossing the Goodrich Memorial footbridge at the end of Park Street, proceed over the railroad tracks and up the trail. At the fork (about 1/4 of a mile), take the right and continue over to the glen.

Length:

  • 1 mile round trip if retracing back through the glen
  • 2 miles round trip if returning via Ice Glen Road, South Street, and Park Street.

Difficulty:

Difficult. Some sections require climbing and holding to navigate boulders.
