The Poet's Seat Tower Trail at Rocky Mountain Park in Greenfield, Massachusetts is a moderate 0.8 mile out-and-back hike. At the top of the hill there are several benches along the cliffs and Poet's Seat Tower itself, which both offer views of Greenfield and Mount Toby to the south.
The trail follows the road and some orange blazes for a short distance, but the blazes can be hard to follow. After 0.2 miles into the hike, the trail turns left and shoots almost straight up the steep hill but ends rather quickly. The rest of the trail follows along the road (which is accessible for all vehicles).
This is a very popular hike near Greenfield, MA and the trail is usually highly-trafficked on weekends.
Parking: Parking can be found at the lot on Beacon Field near the end of Sanderson Street. The trail has an unmarked at the entrance at this parking lot.
