I'm glad to get this post going again. As i said to posts ago, I am looking for a proposal spot in the Amherst/Western Mass area. We are going to be staying in Amherst, but anywhere in Western Mass. Ideally private and descent shade since it will be about 85 degrees. Please let me know of any and all ideas! Much appreciated!!

Default Bartholomew's Cobble

That is a very beautiful place with trails along a lazy stretch of the Housatonic and I haven't had any particular trouble there myself with bugs. Where I have had extreme bug problems in mid-summer: hiking into the Dana center area of the Quabbin lands west of Petersham, and on Old Town Hill in Newbury. But not in the Berkshires or in the Conn Valley. As N. E. Girl writes, Quabbin might be just right--not the wild lands but Quabbin Park which you reach off route 9. Beautiful spots there. What about the Arcadia wildlife sanctuary in Easthampton? I remember some nice stretches there along the Oxbow.

Well, a nice place to propose would be Skinner Park on top of Mt Holyoke off rte 47 going south. Romantic drive to get up there, breathtaking views of the valley, and if it hasn't changed, there were little shelters to sit under or you could walk on the path and find a private rock to sit on for privacy.

Maybe its too obvious and cliche for locals, but I still love the views on top of Sugarloaf.
