Berkshire Natural Resources Council’s trails are open. We recognize the importance of being outside for mental and physical well-being and our goal is to maintain this status for our community. Our use policies during this time follow the guidelines of the CDC and State of Massachusetts. We also ask that you avoid parking on the road if a parking lot is full and to come back at another time. Please leash your dog on BNRC trails at this time, since our four-legged friends don’t seem to understand social distancing.
