A wonderful variety of sights from forests to wetlands spanning two glacial lakes joined together by a narrow waterway. Goose Pond and Upper Goose Pond are products of the same glacial forces that carved out many Berkshire lakes. But there the similarity largely ends. Goose Pond covers more than 200 acres. The shore is lined with cottages, and the drone of a few motorboats crisscrossing the lake is normal fare. The wild side of Goose Pond is found along the northern shore where the Goose Pond Reservation, owned and maintained by The Trustees of Reservations, protects about 0.25 mile of shoreline and 112 acres of forest.
