Trip Log


Borden Mountain
Savoy, MA

Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below. "Summit" photos may in fact not be at the actual summit - but instead at the best nearby vista.

Tower Road to Borden Mountain summit

The Tower Road hike is a fairly easy one, as the road is still used by authorized vehciles. To get to the gate, you'll want an offroad vehicle. If you do not have an offroad vehicle, you may want to park a bit west of the gate at the trailhead, as the access road is not well maintained.
