A wild, rarely visited preserve that provides lots of solitude, an abundance of birdsong, and pastoral views from a distinctive rocky promontory. Dry Hill is probably the most prominent landmark in New Marlborough. From any of the nearby roads it appears as a great rounded, forested mound with white rock cliffs gleaming from the hill’s crest. For years the cliffs had a mysterious quality, primarily because they were on private land and inaccessible to the public. In recent years, however, a large portion of Dry Hill was purchased by The Trustees of Reservations (TTOR) and a foot trail has opened that leads to those once mysterious white cliffs. Now everyone can satisfy their curiosity and visit the ledges for themselves.
