Laura's Tower Trail

Share This Page

A quiet, wooded assent, starting out through old stand pine and hemlock. Midway up, a boulder outcropping gives a hint of the wonders of Ice Glen. Nearing the end of the climb is a large section of birch interspersed with mountain laurel. A metal tower at the summit provides a panoramic view of the middle Berkshires, including Mount Greylock to the north, the highest point in Massachusetts. On a clear day, one can see 68 miles west to the New York Catskills, and 50 miles north to the Green Mountains in southern Vermont.

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 left and continue up to the summit.

Length:

1.5 miles round-trip.

Difficulty:

Moderately difficult. 600' vertical assent.
