Some hikes simply don't get the publicity they deserve, and 1778 foot Negus Mountain located in the town of Charlemont in the Northern Berkshires is certainly one of them. I had seen some open rock on Negus while hiking Todd Mountain last summer and have had it on my radar ever since. While doing some research on this peak, I discovered that there is a trail that climbs up and over the mountain, but information is very minimal. So I took it upon myself to explore this rugged peak myself. Parking is located off of Zoar Road on an unmarked side road just prior to a bridge crossing over the Deerfield River. There is no trail signage but you continue on foot to the end of the road where you will come to a wooden fence. Just beyond the fence are railroad tracks, which you need to cross. Once across the tracks you will see trail markers. Elevation here is about 750 feet.
