Spanning Easthampton and Northampton, Arcadia’s diverse terrain of forest, meadows, grasslands, marsh, and wetlands attracts an extraordinary variety of wildlife. You'll also find a thriving population of wildflowers thanks to its rich, loamy soil—a characteristic of the Connecticut River floodplain. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.

Location: 127 Combs Road, Easthampton, MA 01027
Phone: 413-584-3009
Hours: Trails open daily, dawn to dusk; Nature Center & restrooms open Saturdays, 9 am-1 pm
