Spruce Hill via Busby Trail

Spruce Hill via Busby Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Perhaps the best views after a short hike in the entire region. An old road leads past an early-nineteenth-century cellar hole to a rocky perch with stunning views of the eastern face of the Greylock Range, and the Taconic Range beyond, as well as points north and south.

From the kiosk, where trail maps may be available, walk up into a young forest of birch, maple, and beech, with a few red spruce. After about 150 feet, reach Busby Trail, a dirt road that suffers from off-road vehicle traffic in spite of their
prohibition. Turn right onto the level, blue-blazed path bordered and shaded by sugar maples, white and gray birches, striped maple, and hobblebush shrubs."
