Old-Growth Treks: Thumper Mountain

Explore one of Massachusetts’ rarest ecosystems: old-growth forest left undisturbed and in its original, natural state. Three separate hikes with three different challenge levels. Visit the last forests that remain truly undisturbed by humankind. A knowledgeable guide helps you appreciate these unique living communities more deeply. Easy. A mountain for almost everyone! Thumper Mountain, a shoulder of Todd Mountain, is a family favorite for good reason, and your guide can help you see how many of the trees, although not the largest, have become among the oldest in the state. 1.5-mile loop with 280 feet elevation gain, 2-hour hike. Meet at the Nature Center at Mohawk Trail State Forest, Charlemont, MA. Parking on Route 2 at entrance.
