What travelers are saying
- Very nice views and a bit of exercise for walking around the park on a sunny fall day. I was not looking for trails and so this was an ideal place to be.Written November 7, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- It is hard to believe this charming little park is so close to downtown Pittsfield. My family and I enjoyed a nice quiet walk here. Parking is easy. The trails are well marked and easy. It is a free attraction. It makes for a pleasant walk in the woods which I recommend.Written August 28, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Off the beaten path, you need to ask but it is on the GPS software. 2 1/2 mile hike that takes you up the Cobble (fancy name for big rock) to the Appalachian Trail go about 1 mile and then down the other part of the loop. Has an elevation gain of 430 feet but the top has several beautiful vistas. Moderate difficulty but worth the effort.Written October 2, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Noce trails to explore the woods. The rusting machinery intermixed with the trees and plants in such a cool way. Trails branch off the path from the parking lot. We only had time to walk around the quarry area. There were lots of early wildflowers along the paths. I'm looking forward to coming back in the fall.
A port-a-potty is located in the parking lot. It is maintained regularly, a nice feature.Written May 1, 2021
- We visited in the early winter and although the park is closed off with a chained fence you can walk around this by foot and through the little park to the falls. Very pretty and seems like it would be a great place for a picnic in the summer although the park states that it is open to locals only. Watch your step because of slippery rocks and ice in the winter.Written March 22, 2021
- We live just far enough away from Williamstown and North Adams that a visit to Mass MoCA, the Theater Festival, or other event makes us want to stay over night. This State Park is the ideal outdoor option, just a few miles north of North Adams. Recently updated facilities and a lovely wooded setting with pond are quite pretty; lots of ferns, moss and boulders.
Sites 2, 4 and 6 have unobstructed views through the tall trees down to the pond (and the sites across the road from them have a glimpse of the blue water, too).
Since we're spoiled by living in a place with no road noise, we'd rather not hear the vehicles on Route 8 and the street along the south edge of the park (not a lot of traffic, but the sound travels uphill). Sites 24 - 40 are down the hill so would likely be the quietest.Written June 8, 2019
- The cast bronze statue is magnificent. I have seen it may times and it is overwhelming.
However it actually faces the river crossing which the Mohawks used to traverse when they came to collect wampum from their underling tribes. Or to raid.Written November 17, 2020
