Jacobs Hill is one of the gems of the Tully Trail, affording magnificent views of the Tully River and Long Pond, as well as of Tully Mountain, Mt. Grace, and the Berkshire Hills to the west. By following the rectangular yellow blazes of the Tully Trail one way and round yellow blazes the other, visitors complete a 2-mile loop that passes a lovely swamp along the Tully River. Halfway along is Spirit Falls, where a stream splashes dramatically down a steeply angled slope to Long Pond. (A trail down the slope at this point is strenuous.) The source of Spirit Falls is Little Pond, a classic bog of open water ringed by sphagnum moss and then by spruce and tamarack; the bog is visible from a pull-off a short way south on Rte. 68.

Directions:

From Royalston center, follow Rte. 68 north 0.5 miles to parking and entrance on left.
