The Ruins on Mt. Tom: A Hike Into History
November 9 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Have you ever wondered about the structures that graced the summit of Mount Nonutuck, the most northerly peak on the Mt. Tom range? Carl Libucha will lead us on a hike to explore the extensive Eyrie House ruins, which have captured the imagination of all who have visited them. Join us for a vigorous and fascinating hike on November 9th (10am-1pm).
Carl has spent the past 10 years exploring the area and researching the history of this part of the Mount Tom Range, and he has built a scale model of the Eyrie House Complex. He will guide us through an exploration of the old hotel foundations, the remains of the old ice house and well, and give us a taste of the grandeur of times past. We will meet at the Visitors Center, hike the McCool Trail to the ruins, the New England Trail to Dry Knoll with spectacular views of the iconic Oxbow and Berkshire Hills, and head back by way of the Beau Bridges Trail.
This will be a moderate to challenging 4-mile hike.
Registration is required, and will open in November.
The event is free for participants, though donations are welcome. The rain date is Sunday, November 10th.
