Holland Glen, M-M Trail, Belchertown, MA

Update: Our recent visit here found the trail well used, the parking area full. The top two photos are from May 24, 2009. We went up to a fairly large waterfall area with a pool underneath. A campfire area and large picnic rock overlook the small waterway.

This gorgeous walk follows the path of a babbling brook as it flows through a serene wooded landscape.

From the M-M trail guide:
Mass. Rte. 9, Holland Glen, to Mount Lincoln (5.0 miles)
An interesting walk over ridge tops and beside dancing streamlets on footpaths and old town roads long since abandoned, bordered on the West Hill area by sturdy pioneer stone walls with old cellar holes which mark the site of an old agrarian community, all now in mixed forest. Holland Glen is a steep-sided ravine with a crystal dashing stream, shaded by a mature hemlock stand, forever preserved by the Belchertown Historical Society.
