Directions to trailhead: From Greenfield, take Route 2 West toward Shelburne Falls. Just after passing Route 2A to Shelburne Falls on the left, Halligan Avenue will be on the right. There is limited room to park on the uphill side of Halligan Avenue. The Fire Tower Trail trailhead is adjacent to a paved gutter between the two.
