MA: Berkshires- Stockbridge- Laura’s Tower (Hiking)

At the end of a dead street lay this beautiful suspension bridge. The street was so unassuming it was beyond my expectation to find not only the bridge but the beautiful stone arch as well as the greet just beyond.

The trail continued by crossing a railroad track and reaching a tree to direct you to Laura’s Tower or the Ice Caves. First I followed the path to Laura’s tower. One word of caution, the trail is not very well marked. Look for white marks on the trees where arrows lack.

The hike to Laura’s tower was moderate with no scrambles of any type. The view from the tower was fun of the middle Berkshires mountain ranges even if a cloudy day.

I then returned to take the ice caves route. First for this route there are rock scrambles and you need the proper foot attire. As I was only wearing Ugg boots I didn’t feel sure footed enough to pause and take pictures. It was a fun ravine to climb through however.

From there you can actually go out to Ice Glen road and walk back on the road for a mile back to Park Street.

I would recommend a walk through the town of Stockbridge before or after. A stop at Peace, Love and Chocolate is sweet!
