Mostly forested ridgeline for hikers, snowshoers, seasoned cross-country skiers, mountain bikers, hunters and berry-pickers.
Trails lead across streams and cascades through a boulder-strewn natural amphitheater to a beaver pond and the site of two long-gone man-made dams.
Multiple loops with fabulous beaver pond views. Formerly a heron rookery still teeming with wildlife.
A wild river with evidence of a time when the area was not so wild: traces of a dam, extensive stone walls, and an intact house foundation.
Walk mowed paths through open fields with views that are both sun-splashed and windswept, stunning in all seasons.
Ridgeline trail along the Berkshires’ northeastern wall with cool rock cliffs and several dramatic vistas: prepare for the sublime!
The loop trail gets you up close and personal with more than a half-mile of Housatonic riverbank.
This summit at Mahanna Cobble offers a beautiful vista where we acknowledge BNRC founder George Wislocki. Visit his stone bench and explore this northern trailhead for The High Road.
The Old Mill Trail is your best way to get at the upper reaches of the Housatonic River.
Olivia’s Overlook is at the center of the Yokun Ridge South reserve and connects to The High Road.
