Brush Mountain (Northfield)

Brush Mountain is traversed by section 16 of the M&M Trail (now the New England Trail) and includes the Crag Mountain outlook. Mount Grace protected 46 acres at the trailhead in 2005 and an additional 188 acres beside the Northfield sections of the trail in 2011.

The summit of Brush Mountain is currently closed. We will have updates on access to the trail as changes occur.


From Route 2 take Route 63 north for 5.6 miles. Turn right on South Mountain Road (look for a sign for the Linden Hill School on the corner) and follow the long climb for 3.6 miles and take a left on Gulf Road. Continue for 1.75 miles and look carefully for a turnout where the white-blazed New England National Scenic Trail crosses the road.
