About Bullard Woods
Bullard Woods is a hiking area with family-friendly trails and scenic views. An easy loop path brings hikers through groves of majestic pine trees and open meadows. Halfway along this main path, visitors will greet a gorgeous view of Stockbridge Bowl and the Berkshires. Picnic tables and benches abound here, allowing for a leisurely day of watching the lake ripple and reflect the green mountains of Western Mass. Visitors can also picnic in one of the park’s meadows, where a table rests idly underneath the shade of a sprawling oak tree. For a more moderate hiking experience, small, rugged hiking trails span the interior of the park. During the summertime, visitors will encounter plenty of wildlife—including species of salamander and waterfowl. Some trails also connect to nearby Gould Meadows for further hiking.
Bullard Woods overall offers a short and exciting day of recreation. All paths are well-marked and easy to follow, making the park perfect for young families and avid hikers alike. The park is directly adjacent to Tanglewood, where Hawthorne Street meets Hawthorn Road. The parking lot is large and easily visible from the main road. There is also a dock for lake access to the park.
