RRR Brooks Trail

RRR Brooks Trail head sign off Bee Hill Road
The RRR Brooks trail is a nice 2.5 mile hike through the Hopkins Memorial Forest, a 2,600 acre reserve in Williamstown, Massachusetts.  It is accessible from either the parking lot at the top of the Petersburgh Pass (see Hike to the Snow Hole, which uses this same lot), or use the access point on Bee Hill Road -- driving from Route 7 in Williamstown, turn off onto Bee Hill Road and proceed a short ways; cross the wooden bridge for Flora Glen Brook and the trail head sign will be on your right (approximately 1.3 miles from Route 7).  We used two cars, starting at the Bee Hill Road trail head and finishing at the parking lot atop the Pass.  By combining the RRR Brooks trail with the Sara Tenney Trail, you can use one car though the total hike then approaches 5 miles.
