New Ashford: A portion of the AT goes through New Ashford, with its most prominent feature being the summit of Saddle Ball Mountain. However, there are no AT crossings there. Three trailheads are located along (or slightly off) Rockwell Rd. in Mt. Greylock State Reservation. There are two motels on US Rte. 7 in New Ashford, however most other services are either in Lanesborough (to the south) or Williamstown (to the north).

New Ashford’s most prominent attraction is Mt. Greylock State Reservation which occupies nearly half of the total area in town.

Did you know? In the early 20th century, New Ashford was the town which conducted “first in the nation” voting (much like Dixville Notch in New Hampshire does today). On November 2, 1920, Phoebe Jordan of New Ashford became the first woman to vote in a national election following the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.
