Passed the parking lot and had to turn around at the dirt road. Wonderful easy walk and beautiful view. Once you see the fireplace, you’re at the ledge with a great view.

I happened to be wearing long capris, socks, and sneakers. There is a lot of poison ivy along the path. The path is groomed well. They take great care of the park. (Conservation land) You park your car at a gate and walk hilly trails....More

Good views, lovely land..vernal pools etc. Lovely flora and fauna. Quite a few folks there when ever we're gone.Moderately challenging we think. No dogs even on a leash.

I have written about the High Ledges before, but it is one of my favorite spots in Western Mass. Apart from the trails and the spectacular view, it is usually never filled with other people. If you go during the week, you might not come...More

A lovely hike. Not hard, but so beautiful. Audubon acquired Dutch Barnard's retreat in the woods, perched on a rock overlook, in 1970...he proposed to his wife there. It is inspiring. You will see why. Lady Slippers in spring, leaves on fire in autumn. A...More

Followed the signs to High Ledges and stayed on the main hiking path. A very pleasant walk on a late morning which only took about 15 minutes to reach the top. Took in the beautiful views while sitting on the stone ledge. Not a cloud...More

The view at the top is AMAZING! You can see for miles and miles. It is truly breathtaking! The walk out is easy with some steeper parts but good for all ages. There were a ton of bugs and many horse flies, I wish we...More

The trip up to parking area is dramatic enough, and the walk itself is nicely varied without being too strenuous. I've never seen it all, in several trips, so it's worth repeated visits.
