The Berkshire “hills,” a north-south spine of rounded mountains located between the Taconic and Hoosac ranges, peacefully blend the natural beauty of forests, orchards, rivers, and waterfalls. This area remained a wilderness long after settlers populated the state further east. There are three major mountains to climb or simply enjoy from a distance, as well as lakes and streams to fish and swim in. Towns and villages abound with historic homes, antiques shops, and fairs. And the whole region is touched with a rich heritage of literature, painting, sculpture, and the performing arts. During each summer, music, theater, and dance festivals bring renewed life to the Berkshires, continuing the tradition begun in the nineteenth century. This eTrail contains everything you need to getaway for a quick daytrip or a long weekend jaunt. A route map is included and as are suggestions for the best things to do, places to eat, and places to stay.
