The Pocumtuck Ridge Trail is north-south in orientation and about 15 miles long. Its southern end is at South Sugarloaf mountain in South Deerfield, MA. Its northern end is on Rocky Mountain in Greenfield, MA. The trail follows the ridgeline most of the way, with views to both east and west.
Though the trail is fairly well blazed, trail maps are hard to come by. The map here is built from GPS data gathered while hiking the trail.
The markers on this map highlight selected points of interest along the trail. Click on a marker to see the name of what's at that location.
