Ramblin' with the Rav - The High Road 

4.9 Miles, 900'+ Elevation Gain

About 3 hours of hiking plus transit time.

Join Rabbi Weiner for a great hike, good company, and a little Torah, when we walk a portion of the Berkshire High Road, one-way from Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary to Bousquet in Pittsfield. 

We'll meet at the trailhead at Bousquet to shuttle to Pleasant Valley. We'll descend through a meadow to a stream crossing, then climb steeply (<900') in about 1.5 miles, alongside a cascading brook to the Lenox Fire Tower. A mostly level/downhill walk along the ridge takes us past Yokun Seat to Mahanna Cobble. Great views over Richmond, the October Mountain ridge, and Pittsfield. The hike concludes with a quick descent alongside the ski slopes to the Bousquet parking lot.

This hike is suitable for new and experienced hikers who are physically prepared for a 5-mile hike up and down a hill & in the woods.

A $5 fee may apply for those who are not members of Mass Audobon or residents of Lenox. Pre-registration is essential to receive more information about gear, logistics, and what to bring. No dogs are permitted on Mass Audobon property.
