About Threemile Hill Trail
The 2-mile long trail is a moderate up and down path through the woodland, with a surprising view of Monument Mountain from the Fountain Pond end of the trail. Please take precautions during hunting season. The elevation change is 350 feet. Allot 90 minutes for a one-way walk on this trail.

This two-mile long trail has three terminus points. It can be hiked as a return trip in one direction by pre-positioning a vehicle at one of the other trailheads. A goal for the future is to create trail connections that will create a complete loop hike from a single trailhead.

The southern end of the trail is at the Berkshire South Regional Community Center (BSRCC) on Crissey Road, off US-7 just north of the Price Chopper Plaza. The trailhead is located off the parking area at BSRCC. Look for the signboard near the gazebo. The northern end of the trail is off the parking area at Fountain Pond State Park, just off US-7 and .8 mile north of Crissey Road. The trailhead at Community Health Programs (CHP) connects visitors to an easy walk within the entire system or another connection to the longer Threemile Hill Trail via Fountain Pond.

Great Barrington Land Conservancy is supporting improvements at the Threemile Hill Trail with the donation of locally harvested lumber to be used to build a new information kiosk at Berkshire South. Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation is managing this season’s trail improvement project, which includes work to be done by a Student Conservation Association trail crew. Collaborative trail efforts like this one are accomplished through the project, Great Barrington Trails and Greenways.
