Enjoy the crisp air and beautiful colors of peak fall foliage along Hoosac Range’s ridgeline hike to Sunset Rock. We will enjoy a special fall treat at the summit as we appreciate the spectacular view of North Adams, Mount Greylock, and the Green Mountains. In honor of Indigenous People’s Day, we will also discuss the history and significance of nearby Mohican Mohawk Trail. This hike will be 1.6 miles roundtrip, including moderate elevation gain.  

Well behaved dogs on leash are welcome.
