DIRECTIONS to the Tamarack Hollow Nature & Cultural Center, 1515 & additional trails at 1516 Savoy Hollow Rd, Windsor, MA
*Please do not use a GPS – be sure to enter Savoy Hollow Road via Griffin Hill Rd off Route 116 in Savoy, MA. From Rt 9, in Windsor center take 8A north to Rt 116 in Savoy. At end of Rt 8A take a right onto Route 116 heading towards Savoy Center and Plainfield. Go approx 1.1 miles through the center of Savoy and take your first right after the center of town onto River Rd (there is a small brown house with cream trim on the corner, this is #4 River Road). After the small house, cross the small bridge over the river and go immediately to your right up the hill – this is Griffin Hill Rd (there is a small sign saying “Tamarack Hollow 1 mile” on the post).
Continue up this road (turns to dirt) for approximately 1 mile until it ends at a “road closed” sign (you are now in Windsor on Savoy Hollow Road at the backside of Notchview Reservation). Turn around in the driveway of #1515 or #1516 and park along the road facing north (or if room in the driveway of #1516). Meet at the Tamarack Hollow Sign.
