top of the world westfield

okay guys and girls, i live in western ma and the shop i work for is in westfield. every day i drive past a great view of east mountain, and heading up westfield Rd. going to holyoke, there is a trail that ALWAYS has tire tracks on it and coming out of the trail. the name that people call the spot is THE TOP OF THE WORLD and i want to know how hard it is to get there in a jeep. i know people ride this trail a lot and any info will help. what size lift, tires, accessories needed, etc... right now i have an 08 wrangler x, stock hight and 30' tires. im planning on getting a 2.5 or 3" lift soon and im really itching to go on this trail in the summer/spring. my brother went in there in a f150 with 35's and a 2" lift(and got stuck on a tree) and are there any easy/moderate trails around this area?? thanks everyone!!!!

I know exactly what your talking about. I have never been there myself but a good friend of mine goes there a lot with his stock truck (don't know what it is) and his brothers Cherokee. No problem. And he has invited me to go with him up there I just haven't gotten a chance. I have a pretty much stock jeep and all he said was that bigger tires would help but I could still do it stock. I hope this helps.

i think its no trespassing up there. i have not been up there in years. the original entrance is where the driveway is. i think there is one house up there now. at one time there was a deep swamp near the top. if you do go give a report on it.

Great place to off-road, not much of a lift needed, some trails that follow the same road are deeper than the other. If you go alone your gonna need a spotter, but it's rock climbing to the top part for the view. And your gonna need power not a 4 banger.

okay so i just hiked up here not too long ago and from where i parked my jeep (about 100 feet from the road) to the top is about 1 mile. it took me about 20-30 minutes to hike but i was also going pretty quick because the sun was going down. there are some rougher trails more towards the top but still can be done in a stock jeep or truck with a spotter. i plan on going up here with a couple friends and with a budy who's got a quad soon too. hopefully that helps
