About Ross Brook Trailhead - East

The Ross Brook Trailhead will bring visitors to a small, moderate hiking trail in Savoy Mountain State Forest. The path begins in a forest of beech trees and then continues along Ross Brook. The sound of rushing water is constantly audible along this trail, and many local Western Massachusetts wildlife species are often visible. Eventually, after one mile of hiking, visitors will reach the end of the trail at a double-track near balanced rock (a large boulder resting precariously at the top of a hill). Visitors can hike up toward balanced rock and return on the Ross Brook Trail for a two-mile out-and-back hike.

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. In the summertime, the forest has various programming for overnight visitors at the local campground. The area is also open for hunting during the appropriate seasons.

The path leaves from the parking lot for Tannery Falls, which showcases beautiful cascades and mossy rocks. Further down the road, visitors will encounter scenic views at a small pond.

Tannery Road is seasonal and becomes a groomed snowmobile trail in the winter. In winter it may look passable or recently plowed when groomed, but wheeled vehicles are prohibited.
