Laura's tower and to the ice glen--both trails emanate from the same trailhead, located behind The Red LionInn, a landmark in Stockbridge. Make a left turn at tyhe Inn and the 2nd left aat Park Street. Pass a gas station, roller blading park with ramps, until you hit the small parking area. Go over the scenic footbridge, cross the railroad tracks, ascent uphill following the markings on the trees.
We hiked 2/3 mile to Laura's Tower. It was a clear beautiful afternoon We climbed the ladder for breathe taking views of the Bershires. Our camera captured the sights. We passed hikers that commented about bug spray, but we weren't effected.
