This 32-acre parcel is Berkshire Natural Resource Council’s first land acquisition on Parsons Marsh. Combined with land owned by the Town of Lenox, the southern half of Parsons Marsh is conserved and open to the public. In 2017/18 BNRC hopes to construct trailhead parking and a pedestrian trail giving access to views across the Marsh.
NOTE: this is the first Berkshire Natural Resource Council property that is NOT open to hunting. We made this decision because it is not possible to allow hunting on BNRC’s land while supporting the deed restrictions on the Town land, which preclude hunting.
No parking is available at this time. Access is available opposite Stonover Farm, 169 Undermountain Road, Lenox.
