If you are a city-dweller seeking a peaceful walk in the woods and a bit of fresh air, make sure to visit Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary – a property of Mass Audubon. With miles of extensive trails through a 1300 acre wilderness, it offers views, forests, wetlands, rare species, and terrain both friendly and challenging for walkers and hikers.

Kennedy Park – a town conservation property for miles of trails – is easily accessed from downtown Lenox by a moderate walk up past the Church on the Hill or via trail access from the Arcadian Shop parking lot. Trails here are open to dogs, mountain bikes, XC Skiers and snowshoers in the winter and is a great place for a traffic-free run. Maps are available at the Lenox Visitors Center.

Looking to get on the water? The Housatonic is a winding water walkway that twists itself around the Berkshires. Grab a friend and call ahead to the Arcadian Shop in Lenox. They’ll deliver two kayaks to Decker’s Landing and pick you up at Woods Pond after a few hours of paddling on the Housatonic and reconnecting with nature.

Want to climb to the stars? At 3,491 feet, Mt. Greylock is the highest peak in the state. With more than 50 miles of hiking trails and most summit trails with 2,000+ foot ascents, Mt. Greylock State Reservation ranks up there with any hiking destination in the Northeast. However, unlike many high peaks in the northeast, Mt. Greylock’s summit is also home to a rustic 1930’s lodge constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps. You can even sleep and eat there!
