      From Williamstown

      From the intersection of Route 2 west and Route 7, head west on Route 2 for 0.3 miles to a left on Torrey Woods Road. In 0.4 miles, bear right at the intersection with Berlin Road. Follow Berlin Road for 1.3 miles to the unmarked pull-off on the right. Or continue farther west on Berlin Road to the trailhead for the Class of ’33 trail.

      This is the planned jumping off point for a proposed ridgeline trail intersecting with the Taconic Crest Trail north of Berlin Road, as well as the Sarah Tenney Trail – part of a larger vision for this beautiful bowl straddling the NY/MA state line. For now, you’re free to explore the hollows and ridgeline on your own.
