King Phillip’s Hill Trail

Hiking Trail

blank dot

King Philip’s Hill is a historic site located in Northfield, Massachusetts. This 10.5-acre parcel, controlled by the Conservation Commission, is held solely for conservation and historic preservation purposes. The trail offers two options: a loop walk and a riverbank walk. The loop walk traverses around the edge of gullies, while the riverbank walk progresses gently upward to the top of the riverbank. The site was used by the Wampanoag chief, Metacomet, known as "King Philip" by the colonists, for his encampment during King Philip’s War in 1675. Today, remnants of the trenches and bank fortifications are still visible in the forested underbrush.
