About Bog Pond Trail, Mahican-Mohawk Trailhead

The Bog Pond Trail is an easy, family-friendly hiking trail in Savoy Mountain State Forest. The path strolls alongside Bog Pond: a picturesque body of water with scenic views of the surrounding Western Massachusetts forest.

There are also many local wildlife-viewing opportunities along the pond. The water is slightly acidic, creating a unique bog ecosystem. Carnivorous plants and sphagnum moss are present along the water. Then, an abundance of bird species, including heron and wood duck, rest in the pond throughout spring and summer. In addition to hiking, visitors can also go canoeing or kayaking through this habitat. There is a small boat launch next to the trailhead for cartop  boating and electric motor only.

The Bog Pond Trail is part of the Mahican-Mohawk Trail, which spans from Deerfield to North Adams. Visitors can hike east toward the Savoy Mountain State Forest Campground or west toward Mohawk Trail State Forest.

Savoy Mountain State Forest is a large outdoor recreation area with plenty of opportunities for an enjoyable day in the Berkshires. The forest features campsites, swimming areas, and over 50 miles of hiking trails. The area is also open for hunting during the appropriate seasons. 

There is no designated parking for the Bog Pond Trail. Visitors should park on the shoulder of New State Road where appropriate.
