The Berkshire Natural Resources Council’s mission is to “protect and preserve the natural beauty of the Berkshires” for the benefit of the community. 50+ miles of trails traverse the region from north to south, offering a diversity of environments. On any one of the marked trails you may encounter old stone walls, secluded ponds, and breathtaking views.
Mass Audubon’s Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary in nearby Lenox, MA offers a variety of trails from easy to strenuous set among 1000 lush acres. You’ll likely encounter evidence of the wildlife that call the sanctuary home while exploring the paths through the woods and wetlands, including an active beaver colony.
