To Swamp Road Wood Works
Below are written directions to SRWW. I have also included four printable maps scaled from Western MA coverage down to SRWW local.
From Route 2:
If you are coming from Rt. 2 east of I91 take Rt. 2 West. Rt. 2 will join Interstate 91 South to Greenfield. Stay on Rt. 2 & I91 South for one exit. Exit I91 at exit 26, the Rt. 2 West exit and continue on RT. 2 West for approximately 9.7 miles. There will be two exits for Rt. 112. The first is Rt. 112 North. Pass it. Shortly you will go under a bridge. Then take an immediate right onto Rt. 112 South. Follow Rt. 112 South Directions below.
If you are coming from Rt. 2 west of Buckland, MA take Rt. 2 East to Buckland. In Buckland exit Rt. 2 at Rt. 112 South, a left turn off Rt. 2. Follow Rt. 112 South Directions below.
From Interstate 90 (Mass Turnpike):
Take the Mass Pike to Exit 3 (Westfield). After going through the tollbooth take a right onto Rt. 202.
Stay on Rt. 202 for 1.5 miles and take a right onto Rt. 20 West.
Stay on Rt. 20 West for 11.9 miles (you will be in Huntington) and take a right onto Rt. 112 North.
Stay on Rt. 112 North for 13.4 miles and take a left onto Sam Hill Road. Follow Sam Hill Road Directions below.
From Interstate 90 East In New York:
Take Rt. 90 East to exit 11E for Rt. 20 East.
Stay on Rt. 20 East for 27.9 miles into Pittsfield. Turn left onto Rt 7 North & Rt. 9 East.
Follow Rt. 7 North & Rt. 9 East for 1 mile and take a right onto Rt. 9 East.
Follow Rt.9 East for 4.9 miles and it will take you out of Pittsfield and into Dalton.
Along the way Rt. 8 South will join Rt. 9 East from the left, but stay on Rt. 9 East. In Dalton you will come to an intersection where Rt. 8 South goes straight ahead and Rt. 9 East (as well as Rt. 8A) turns to the left. This will be at the 4.9 mile mark. Take Rt. 9 East for 10.5 miles.
At approximately the 10.5 mile mark you will see a sign on the right that says To Rt. 143. Take that right. Slow down for this turn because it is quite sharp. Very shortly, there will be a slight jog in the road as you cross Old Rt. 9, but you essentially stay straight.
Approximately 3.2 miles after crossing Old Rt. 9 this road will connect with Rt. 143, which will join from the right, and you will have a stop sign. After stopping go straight through the stop sign.
Continuing from the stop sign for about 2.6 miles and you will come to a red light. Go straight through the light. You are now on Rt. 112 South.
Continue another 1.1 miles passing a white school and a brown church on your right. At the 1.1 mile mark after the red light turn right onto Sam Hill Road. Follow Sam Hill Road Directions below.
Follow Rt. 112 South for approximately 14.6 miles where Rt. 112 will join Rt. 9. Take a right onto Rt. 9 West.
Stay on Rt. 9 & Rt. 112 for approximately 7 miles. You will see a big white building called The Creamery with a cow sign. Rt. 112 will depart Rt. 9. with a left onto Rt. 112 South. Stay on Rt. 112 South.
Follow Rt. 112 South for 6.4 miles. Pay attention to the signs because you will have to take a few lefts. You will come to a red light, the only red light in Worthington, MA. Behind you will be a country store called Corner Groceries. You are now in Worthington center. At the light take a left. You are still on Rt. 112 South.
From the red light continue another 1.1 miles on Rt. 112 South passing a white school and a brown church on your right. At the 1.1 mile mark turn right onto Sam Hill Road. Follow Sam Hill Road Directions below.
The short version. Take Rt. 2 West to Rt. 112 South. Stay on Rt. 112 South into Worthington and take a right onto Sam Hill Road. Then follow Sam Hill Road directions below.
Continue another 0.8 miles and take a left onto West Street. You may see the West Street sign, but it is often stolen and not marked. However, West Street is the first left after the cemetery on your left. (If you miss this turn onto West Street, Sam Hill Road will become abruptly dirt and will dead end in the hills. Good luck if you make this mistake.)
After turning onto West Street it too will shortly turn into a dirt road. You will come to a fork approximately 0.8 miles form your last turn onto West Street. Stay to the right at the fork. I am the second dirt driveway on your right (you will see the street number’s 345 & 325 on a small red and white sign). Swamp Road Wood Works is the first one, yellow with a red barn, on the left of the driveway.
