Pond Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Berkshires are located in the far west section of Massachusetts, in the rolling hills between New York and Boston. Well known for their natural beauty and ease of access, the Berkshires have inspired great authors and artists such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Norman Rockwell, Herman Melville, and Henry David Thoreau over the years.

Hike around the 35-acre Benedict Pond, taking a rest halfway to sit on the bench gazing over the pond and listen to the children swim and play.This easy-to-follow flat hike is great for beginners or hikers with young children. Possible wildlife sightings include deer, bobcat, beaver, and bear, to name a few."
