Spruce Hill Trail

Spruce Hill Trail Professional Review and Guide

"“l knew I’d made it as a ranger when I landed here!" a park ranger told us of his job at Savoy Mountain State Forest. Other rangers, at other Massachusetts state parks, concur; this one is special.

Although the park is the fourth-largest piece of public land in the state, it’s a hidden gem. Set in the Berkshire Hills at the western edge of the state, this park offers wonderful diversity, with waterfalls, balanced rocks, ponds, and scenic vistas galore. The property is crisscrossed with nearly 60 miles of hiking trails, many of which make awesome snowshoe paths. This hike is set in the northwest comer of the forest. The Busby Trail (named after a local landowner, George Busby) to Spruce Hill is the most popular trail here. It’s great for recreational snowshoe hikers because it is basically a flat, wide woods road, with a short, steep cliff that leads to the summit of Spruce Hill, a distance of 1.5 miles."

Amazing conditions to snowshoe. 22" of snow fell earlier this week and today was 43 degrees with clear skies. We took the Busby Trail to the Spruce Hill summit. Lot's of fun and can't wait to go back and try other snowshoe trails.
