Greenberg Family Conservation Area

Westhampton, MA
Forest with Hiking Trails
Easy to moderate

The Greenberg Family Conservation Area in Westhampton is loved for its lush forest as well as the picturesque Sodom Brook, which supports native brook trout populations. Rebecca and Carolyn Greenberg donated their family’s 70 acres to Kestrel Land Trust in 2017. A new, blazed trail system of loops takes you through a hemlock forest, along the brook, and past magnificent tulip trees. The Central Loop (yellow blazes) is easiest, bringing you to an open clearing with benches and a gathering platform, a perfect place for a picnic or a round of yoga. The Tulip Tree Trail (blue blazes) is slightly more challenging, and the Brookside Path (white blazes) is the most challenging, with a moderately steep portion descending to the brook. The Overlook Trail (orange blazes) is the highest elevation area of the Greenberg Family Forest, leveling off on a plateau.
