Berry Pond Trail

Berry Pond Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Although you are likely to find strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries along the trail to Berry Pond (depending, of course, on the season), the pond gets its name not from the trailside fruit but from William Berry, one of George Washington’s soldiers who owned land in the Berkshires.

At just over 2000 feet elevation, Berry Pond is said to be the highest natural body of water in the state. Although swimming is not allowed, kids can look for bullfrogs or fish in the clear water while the adults relax on the grassy bank."

The directions given by 'trails' regarding the markings were probably outdated. Additionally, the trails were not marked well. On a brighter note, we were able to hike for 4 hours in perfect solitude. The weather was beyond perfect.
