"In Your Backyard"- New Family Hike and Activity series started up in the Berkshire AMC Chapter

Pitcher Brook Falls

"In Your Backyard" is a novel way to introduce families to local adventures. Meeting on the last Sunday of the month, our hikes have included Noble View's Pitcher Brook Falls in Russell, MA, Sanderson Brook Falls in Chester, MA, and Mt. Greylock! Ages have ranged from toddlers to grandparents.

Atop Mount Greylock

Each hike has a theme from conservation to climate change, and the length adjusts to the ability of the hikers, typically from 2-6 miles. Please Contact Heather Wyman @ SquareRoot123@Gmail.com for more information on participating or with suggestions.
