Explore the Outdoors
There is no better place to watch the rebirth of nature than in the hills of the Berkshires – witness the growth of new foliage on the trees and bushes signaling a new season with hiking trails and scenic overlooks to discover. Bask in the beauty of the hills and valleys – Hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail. Visit the breathtaking Bash Bish Falls in Mount Washington one of the highest waterfalls in Massachusetts. Some call it the mud season, but for the dedicated birdwatcher, a pair of snug boots to keep your feet dry and binoculars slung around your neck are all the gear necessary for an afternoon of bird siting. The Audubon Society’s Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary features seven miles of trails on over 1000 -acres in Lenox.
Visit Local Attractions
The Berkshires has always attracted wealthy visitors who having experienced the beauty of the region, solidified their commitment to the area by constructing weekend “cottages.” Many of these elaborate structures remain today and are featured as historic homes and museums for vacationing guests to explore. The Mount, home of the novelist Edith Wharton, is one of the beautiful historic restored homes now open to the public with extraordinary grounds and gardens. Ventfort Hall, another meticulously restored property in Lenox, was constructed by the Morgan family and is also available for visitors who wish to come and examine a bygone era. Visitors can also harken back to an earlier era when Hancock Shaker Village – a living history museum – existed as a thriving agricultural business and spring brought calves, piglets, lambs and chicks to the farm. Come be part of the annual spring celebration of Baby Animals on the Shaker Farm from April 15 till May 7.
