HIKING

According to the Nature Conservetory Jug End is one of the last great places. , Jug End is located in a very picturesque part of southwestern Massachusetts.  By preserving this land and making it accessible to all, hikers can hop out of their car and disappear for a while into a serene natural environment.   The open field views are great and the forest hike that follows along a cascading stream is quiet and peaceful. You'll  get a taste of the past when you see the old furnace that was probably a part of an old milling process.  The loop can be hiked within an hour or two.  J ust follow the trail markers (blue triangles with a picture of an acorn) that are posted on trees at regular intervals. Tthe trails are mostly well maintained and clearly marked. For the most part it's flat but the farther back you go the more the trail rises up. So if you're not looking for a workout or if you hike alone and don't like to be out in the woods then just explore the beautiful fields and mountain views to the left or right of the main entrance area.  It's a beautiful spot anytime of year but it's probably at its most spectacular during the spring, summer, and fall season.

Take Mt. Washington Road (off of Rte. 41) to Jug End rRoad.
