Great Barrington — An event to commemorate the opening of the Whale Rock Trail at the Thomas & Palmer Brook conservation reserve was held on Sunday, November 6.

The reserve was established in 2015 by The Berkshire Natural Resources Council (BNRC) and is located at 305 State Road. According to BNRC’s website, the 267-acre reserve is part of the ancestral homeland of the Mohican reserve.

The land is part of a habitat corridor that includes Monument Mountain Reservation, Housatonic Flats, and Fountain Pond State Park. The land includes three different trails including the half-mile Meadow Loop, the 0.6-mile Woodland Trail, and now the recently created 0.3-mile Whale Rock Trail.
