One of the Appalachian Mountain Club's larger land holdings, Noble View Outdoor Center's 358.5 acres of rural solitude maintain the ambiance of the original 1800s New England farmstead. A quiet, pristine mountaintop location offers breathtaking views of the Pioneer Valley east to Mt. Wachusett.

Easily accessible from major highways, Noble View is a favorite destination for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Beautiful trails wind through woodlands and abandoned farm fields, passing brooks, stone walls, cellar holes, and diverse habitats including an old growth hemlock stand.

On-site and nearby attractions include hiking, swimming, biking, cross-country and downhill skiing, snowshoeing, canoeing, kayaking, backpacking, camping, fishing, and the many historic and cultural resources of Western Massachusetts.

Noble View is an ideal site not just for outdoor activities, but for nature study and photography. The surrounding 117,000 acres of forest, rivers, and streams provide a refuge for many threatened and endangered species, making it a popular location for educational, recreational, and conservation programs sponsored by the Appalachian Mountain Club and other organizations.

Noble View welcomes day visitors, but also provides lodging options for longer stays. These include the completely renovated and modernized Double Cottage, the rustic Farmhouse, and several tent campsites.

Because Noble View is a volunteer-managed facility, visits are self-service, with no staff on site (unless you sign up for one of our scheduled events).

The Noble View Outdoor Center Committee, comprised entirely of volunteers, is responsible for maintaining and improving the property. The Committee's work is supported by income from programs such as SOLO Wilderness First Aid training. Work days are organized throughout the year, and volunteers are always needed.
