This northern Berkshire Mountains retreat unites quiet waters, thriving swamps, and relaxing forest settings. Although removed from the core fly-way for the fall hawk migration, the count station atop Spruce Mountain still documents up to 500 birds, mostly seen in pairs or solitary flight. Vistas and the companionship of chickadees help pass the wait for sightings. A network of interlocking trails explores this 10,500-acre state forest. Because most hikers manage to find their way to Bog Pond and Tannery Falls, this description introduces three other possible hikes. Special attractions: Summit vistas, evergreen–hardwood forests, ponds and brooks, mountain laurel, autumn hawk-watch, and colorful fall foliage.
