Westover Conservation Area is located in Ludlow, MA on Tilley St. The paved road ends after 0.2 miles and opens up to a small trail system - to the left (heading southeast) is a side trail leading to Stony Brook, to the right-hand side is a trail that leads off of the conservation area, and the main trail itself continues on toward Westover Air Reserve Base. This trail is an old access road that lead to Westover Air Reserve Base that's no longer used and has been turned into public land.

During hunting season this is a very popular hunting spot, so be mindful of the seasons and wear blaze orange.

Parking: You can park anywhere along Tilley St as there are no houses along the road. About 0.2 miles in on Tilley St will be a gate that leads into the conservation area - park here, but do not block the gate.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
