Old Mill Trail marker

The Old Mill Trail, found along the banks of the Housatonic River in Hinsdale and Dalton, is a Berkshire gem.

This all-ages summer party will celebrate and generate support for ongoing care of this haven for strolling, wading, fishing, and a new interpretive trail experience!

Drop by for guided walks, fishing (anglers 15 years and older must be licensed), live music, and good eats.

Paul Rice, Andy Gordon, and Tim Gray will appear as the Housatonic Philharmonic to set the trailhead atmosphere with fiddle, guitar, banjo, spoons, piano, penny whistle, hammer dulcimer, and other sounds.

Tasty food and soft drinks will be available from BNRC’s good friends at the Hinsdale Trading Company.

The party is free to attend and everyone is welcome. You can contribute to BNRC for upgrades and upkeep on the Old Mill Trail before, during, or after the event at bnrc.org/donate.

If you know in advance that you’ll be there, please register to help us plan for the day. Yet you are welcome to pop in unannounced!
