Berkshire County’s natural landscape is “a dream come true” and perfect for hikers of all levels, according to Mariah Fogg, community conservation manager for the Berkshire Natural Resources Council (BNRC).

Berkshire County is made up of 40% conservation land and the BNRC alone offers more than 60 miles of hiking trails throughout the county, she said. The trails are located on 58 BNRC reserves that are free and open to the public.

“The Berkshires have so many recreational opportunities and special places,” Fogg said. “You could live here your whole life and not visit every trail, every pond, every aspect of the Berkshires.
