About Fitch Memorial Woods

Fitch Memorial Woods is a small hiking area managed by the Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation. Upon leaving the parking lot, hikers will enter a dense forest of maples and beech trees. Plenty of local Western Massachusetts wildlife species, including birds and squirrels, will be visible in this forest throughout the spring and summer.

Eventually, after a short hike, visitors will arrive at the junction of the Running Pine Trail and the Fitch Trail. Both of these pathways gradually climb the slope, soon coming to an old-growth stand of maples. Then, when these two trails converge, visitors will exit Fitch Memorial Woods.

Beyond the woods, the Fitch Trail ascends steeply to the summit of Bee Hill. At the end of this trail, visitors can then join the RRR Brooks Trail, leading toward meadows near Route 2. These fields provide a habitat for wildflowers and feature excellent scenic views of the surrounding Berkshires. When the weather cools in autumn, the nearby mountains showcase the vibrant oranges and yellows of fall foliage.

Visitors will find a small parking lot off Bee Hill Road. There is an overlook further down Bee Hill Road, which offers views of Sheep Hill and Mount Greylock.
