The 1½-mile North Pond Ridge Trail, blazed in yellow, begins in the Fittz Family Memorial Forest in Orange, descends to a stream, then climbs to and proceeds along North Pond Ridge. This ridge affords evidence of past hurricanes, bent trees serving as witness. About halfway along the trail is a short spur west that leads to a woodland bench and a gorgeous view of Chestnut Hill Ridge. Near the southern end of the ridge, the path connects with the white-blazed Bullard Farm Loop, another section of the Chestnut Hill Trail system. More...

The Orange Historical Society offers a chance for tourists and residents alike to learn about a community with a very rich, if often underplayed, history. A mass producer of sewing machines, tapioca, and hydraulic machines, Orange was (contrary to popular belief) the site of the country’s first automobile factory: Grout Brothers manufactured steam-powered automobiles, one of which is on display in the barn section of the Orange Historical Society. In addition to this vehicle, which traces back to the year 1904, the barn contains a fire pumper and other industrial items. Housed in a Victorian home with identical furnishings, the Orange Historical Society also includes a special children’s room, military room, and alumni room.

Tully MountainTully Mountain


Mountain Road
Orange, MA
Mass.Wildlife@state.ma.us

The focal point of the Tully Trail and of the Tully Mountain Wildlife Management Area, Tully Mountain rises 1,163 feet above sea level and humps dramatically above the relatively flat land around it. Geologically, it is a remnant of ancient mountain building that upthrust the northern Appalachians 400 million years ago. From the northwest it also shows the effect of the glaciers—the northern face ground smooth, the southern face left much more irregular by deposited debris. A loop trail of about 1½ miles leads to outcrops near the summit that afford magnificent views of the surrounding land and waters and of more distant mountains. And Tully Mountain not only offers peace and pleasure to people but also—because of its numerous types of habitats—provides a home for a rich array of plants and animals. More...
