PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

This is the planned jumping off point for a proposed ridgeline trail intersecting with the Taconic Crest Trail north of Berlin Road, as well as the Sarah Tenney Trail – part of a larger vision for this beautiful bowl straddling the NY/MA state line. For now, you’re free to explore the hollows and ridgeline on your own.
