North Berkshire Panorama

Berkshire Panorama off Bee Hill Road
Take a drive to Williamstown across the Petersburgh Pass on Route 2 and keep your eyes posted for Bee Hill Road on the right just before you come all the way down the hill that would normally take you to the intersection with Route 7.  Turn left onto Bee Hill Road -- a narrow dirt road -- drive a short ways and turn into the parking area on the right to enjoy Sheep Hills a fabulous view in a very bucolic setting.  There are two scenic walking loops on the property. Just a tad further down the road is a pull-over area to access the Fitch Memorial Woodlands trail.

North Berkshire Panorama Plaque
You are overlooking Sheep Hill, the former home and dairy farm of Arthur E. and Ella M. Rosenburg and their four children, now a conservation property of the Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation.  The steep and open meadows below showcase the panoramic view to Mt. Greylock, Massachusetts' highest point and one of the first state reservations in the country, and other geographic landmarks.  Popular destination points are depicted in the panoramic drawing....
    


A bit hazy the day we visited.  I'm looking forward to returning when the autumn colors peak.
