Spring is here and the hiking season has started in Massachusetts.
Our volunteers have cleared the trail from the CT border to Pittsfield Rd in Washington. Sat May 23rd, we will clear any remaining blowdowns from there north to the VT border.
Also, we have opened the Upper Goose Pond Cabin and hikers are now welcome to stay in the cabin with a caretaker present. The cabin will be open until October 18th.
It has been a dry spring thus far and the fire danger remains high, so please avoid using camp fires and be especially careful. A fire originating at the Sherman Brook campsite spread and burned ~300 acres, so please be very careful and respect any fire bans posted.
Our AMC and DCR Ridge Runners are coming on board and will soon be out on the trail.
Lastly, for groups planning to hike on the AT in Mass, please consult our Group Hiking web pages at: http://amcberkshire.org/atgrouphike.
