The New England Peace Pagoda Trail in Leverett, Massachusetts is an easy 1 mile out-and-back hike to North America's first peace pagoda.
This is a gravel trail that leads up a small hill towards the monument. At the top of the hill lies the peace pagoda, a peace tree, pond, and stone garden area. During the colder months, you can often get a views of the surrounding mountains through the tops of the trees from the viewing area near the monument.
The physically challenged and elderly are encouraged to drive up to the monument instead of walking up.
Parking: Parking can be found at the first dirt parking lot on the right-hand side of the road just after turning onto the road at the peace pagoda sign off of Cave Hill Rd in Leverett.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
