These moderate loop trails circle two pristine high mountain ponds that are great for swimming. The trail can be wet and buggy in the spring. Savoy has a high elevation and some of the deepest snow in MA-if you plan to snowshoe, come prepared for a workout! Some roads in the SF are not passable in the winter as well. The ponds are fun for canoeing (small but scenic) and great for a swim after your hike. Go to the MA DCR website and visit the Savoy State Forest page for more info on the campground, cabins and picnic area. Wildlife and flora abound here such as Moose, Fisher, Otter, Beaver, rare flowers and plants as well as Boreal forest species such as Fir and Spruce trees. Plan to spend the day here!
There are two state forest entrances-go to the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation website for more info and directions to Savoy State Forest. The entrance from Route 116 is long and involves a bumpy dirt road that is sometimes not passable. Entrance from North Adams highly recommended.
