Note: From Northampton, Hartford or New York City, you may be able to save a few minutes by taking back roads as shown on the map above. More turns are involved, and the roads may be less well maintained in winter weather.

Beware! Some computer map programs or GPS devices will suggest routes that involve roads which have been closed for decades! Cross reference GPS directions with this map

Also - The last mile is very steep. The town does a great job maintaining West Hill Road but the driving can get tricky during snow/ice storms. If you need to arrive during these weather events, you should visit the trail report for road conditions.  Overnight guests should contact us if bad weather threatens.
