Walk Franklin County

Charlemont Center Walk Routes – Charlemont, Mass.

The Charlemont Center walk routes travel past numerous businesses in beautiful downtown Charlemont. Points of interest on this walk include A.L. Avery and Sons General Store, Warfield House, and the Deerfield River Bridge, as well as places to stop to browse outdoor equipment and grab a bite to eat. Part of the Walk Franklin County initiative to encourage fitness through exploring scenic walks in our area, the Charlemont Center Routes are one and two miles in length.

For this walk, there are two options varying in length and difficulty making it accessible to experienced and novice walkers alike! The one-mile walk is flat and within the downtown area. After strolling past area businesses, walkers will end up at the bridge overlooking the Deerfield River where they can take in lovely views. The two-mile walk includes a steep climb up Warfield Road to Warfield House, where walkers can experience stunning views of surrounding mountains. For convenient parking, walkers can park at the Hawlemont School.
