We visit NMREC frequently because of the trails, the beautifully kept riverfront park, and the boat ride in warmer months and the snowshoeing and x-c skiing in winter. A sure bet when traveling to and through the Upper Pioneer Valley!

Do you like to hike? Do you like to picnic. Do you like to canoe? How about cross country skiing? If you are looking for something different, give Northfield Mountain a try. Take a tour and learn the history of Northfield Mountain, the dam, the water pumps and all. Makes for a nice day trip.

The staff is incredible, and they get kids out into nature & noticing things they would not be aware of. Great facility, and terrific teachers.

One of my best days out cross country skiing was here. Though the parking lot was full, we barely saw a soul. The sky was clear blue, the trails were silky smooth, and the sun was warm on our backs.
