Description: Join us for a stroll around the wetlands of the Steepletop Reserve. We’ll hike 5 miles and search for spring happenings like buds breaking open with new leaves emerging, spring ephemerals popping up, and birds arriving. Please bring a snack, water, and wear appropriate footwear.

Directions: From Great Barrington, take Route 23 east to Monterey. Just after the Monterey line, bear right onto Route 57/183 into New Marlborough. Just before the Old Inn on the Green in New Marlborough, turn left onto North Road; follow for 1.6 miles. Turn right at the steep, inclining driveway marked “684”. Bear right into our gravel parking lot at the top of the little hill. The trails begin right at the trailhead parking; there is a kiosk just beyond the gate.
