Straddling the Massachusetts/ Vermont state line, the Trustees of Reservations 180 acre Mountain Meadow Preserve offers easy to moderate hiking on up to 4 miles of trails. I parked at the end of Mason Street in Williamstown, which is found east off of Route 7 just below the state line. As I arrived in the parking lot at an elevation of just under 700 feet, the sun was shining bright, but the humidity was quite strong and thunderstorms were firing up all around the area. I began by following the Niles Trail, which follows a wide, mowed pathway uphill towards the main meadow. Immediately upon arriving at the meadow, I was struck by the amount of wildflowers blowing in the breeze. Here is a look east towards Mason Hill.
