About Field Farm
Field Farm, a 300-acre property in Williamstown, is a hiking area managed by the Trustees of Reservations. Visitors to the property will find a well-maintained network of easy, family-friendly hiking trails.
Immediately upon arriving at the parking lot, multiple flat paths spread through the reservation's fields. From these fields, it is possible to find panoramic scenic views of the Berkshires. Toward the east, visitors will be able to see Mount Greylock and the Hoosac Range. The west, meanwhile, provides excellent views of the Taconic Crest. When cool weather arrives in autumn, these mountains eventually turn vibrant shades of orange and yellow.
The reservation is also an ideal place to view Western Massachusetts wildlife. On the south side of Sloan Road, a beaver dam has crafted a unique swampy environment. While wildflowers and insect species enjoy the fields, amphibians and birds enjoy the wetlands.
Beyond the meadows, the hiking trails travel throughout the surrounding forest. On the park's north side, there are small caves along the side of the path.
Parking is in a sizable lot off Sloan Road before its intersection with Oblong Road. There are also one-car parking spots along the shoulder of Sloan Road. The reservation is well-known for featuring art exhibitions, including a temporary installation by indigenous artist Rose B. Simpson.
