Long Hill Natural Area

View from Long Hill summit, far right is south end of Leverett Pond

Long Hill is on the northwest side of Echo Lake (Leverett Pond). The natural area’s thirty-six acres include the crest of the hill from which spectacular views of the town center, the lake, the southern spread of the Pioneer Valley and the hills to both east and west can be enjoyed. RGT maintains trails that climb to this crest from Camp Road and meander around the property. Details
