This parcel on West Stockbridge Mountain in Stockbridge has no formal access.
It is part of the eastern slope of the mountain, and is a key piece in BNRC’s efforts to conserve all the high ground on this landmark mountain.

This land, and all of the present-day Berkshires, are the ancestral homeland of the Mohican people who were forcibly displaced to Wisconsin by European colonization. These lands continue to be of great significance to the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican Nation today. To learn more visit

The 50-acre Maeder Reserve is entirely forested and is within “Zone B” of the Town of Stockbridge water supply. The donor’s intent was to see the land conserved in perpetuity. BNRC’s goal is to find an appropriate way for hikers to go from Pittsfield to Stockbridge; Maeder is a key piece of this puzzle.
