Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"In the fall, after the leaves have fallen, there are some nice views from Warner Hill, with Mount Greylock to the north being the most notable mountain. This is a pretty and leisurely day hike.

From the paved Blotz Road, head south on the A.T. and climb 0.7 mile through a dense stand of evergreens to the top of Warner Hill. A cairn that sits a few feet to the left of the Trail marks the summit (elevation 2,050'). Return north via the A.T."

"Warner Hill is the most kid-friendly hike described in this book. Its gentle grade takes you through a scenic forest. This is a perfect first hike for small children, as it is safe and very gentle. The trailhead is somewhat remote, but if you’re looking for a nice, gentle hike through a spectacularly scenic forest to introduce your progeny to the wonders of a walk in the woods, this is it. The trail up Warner Hill leads right out from the parking area on Blotz Road. It starts off very well-defined, sloping downward slightly and to the left a bit at first. The trail traverses a swampy area with a couple of wooden Appalachian Trail (A.T.) footbridges. Then the trail meanders at a relatively flat grade through the lush green forest of mostly deciduous trees—maples and birch." Read more

"This is an enjoyable hike on the Appalachian Trail through northern hardwoods interspersed with evergreens. Warner Hill’s partially cleared summit yields a pleasing view of Mount Greylock. Cross to the south side of the road (be alert for traffic speeding downhill around the curve) and ascend the rather steep slope on the white-blazed Appalachian Trail (AT) lined with white ash, red maple, black cherry, and American beech. Note the interesting steplike gneiss rock outcrop studded with quartz crystals. As you level out, prince’s pine and cedar clubmoss—ancient nonflowering plants—add a fairyland quality to the forest floor. On the right stands a fine yellow birch, one of the classic northern hardwood forest indicators." Read more
