Berkshire Natural Resources Council’s trails are open. We recognize the importance of being outside for mental and physical well-being and our goal is to maintain this status for our community. At trailheads you will find signage to encourage social distancing on trails. Our use policies during this time follow the guidelines of the CDC and State of Massachusetts. Masks are now required at all times, including outdoors. We also ask that you avoid parking on the road if a parking lot is full and to come back at another time. Please leash your dog on BNRC trails at this time, since our four-legged friends don’t seem to understand social distancing.
Berkshire Natural Resources Council owns over 11,000 acres where you can hike, snowshoe, run, hunt, take a nap, birdwatch, paint pictures, take photos, hunt for geocaches or place one yourself (check with us for simple guidelines), picnic, or walk your dog responsibly. See individual property pages for more information.
