The A.T. Committee is looking for maintainers for three great sections in the southern Berkshires. These are particularly interesting sections of trail, and a volunteer needs a serious commitment to their upkeep. See http://amcberkshire.org/at-maintaining for the requirements of a Trail Maintainer.

Housatonic River to South Egremont Rd (2.7miles): This mostly flat section across the Housatonic valley experiences rapid plant growth, and some parts need monthly visits May through August. Wildflowers and rare plants abound in this area.
Mt Everett Summit to Elbow Trail (1.8 miles): This higher elevation section is accessed from the Mount Everett summit road in Mt Washington Mass. It contains sections of dense laurel growth and contains about 2 dozen water bars that need annual cleaning. Two overnight sites are on this section, but are covered by other adopters.
Mt Everett Summit to Mt Race Summit (1.8 miles): This rugged section is accessed from the Race Brook Falls Trail on Rt 41. Heavy laurel growth and steep trails make this a challenging section. Great views on both summits and the satisfaction of a job well done are your rewards.
