Social Activity

Anything with an explicitly social aspect: social events, trips with a post-trip meal or get-together, etc.

Views and Brews on the NET

The New England Trail (NET) recently partnered with Artifact Cider Project, a Springfield-based company that makes hard cider with all local apples. The product of this partnership is Trail Hopper cider, a dry-hopped cider made with apples from Pine Hill Orchards in Colrain. To promote the cider, Berkshire and Worcester Chapter leaders will be leading a series of "views and brews" hikes throughout the spring and early summer.

Support the New England National Scenic Trail

The New England National Scenic Trail (NET) is a 215-mile hiking trail route that has been in existence for over half a century. The NET runs from Long Island Sound in CT to the MA/NH border, comprised primarily of the Mattabesett, Metacomet, and Monadnock (M-M-M) Trail systems. In Massachusetts, the white-blazed trail follows the historic route of the Metacomet-Monadnock trail. Here are some upcoming opportunities to support this historic trail.

Are you looking for great local things to do, and new activities to try? Please come and see what AMC Berkshire is all about, or come see old friends!

It's all happening on Saturday, March 23 at 6 PM at the Florence Civic Center at 90 Park Street in the center of Florence (directions). We’ll check out this historic building and setting, new to us. Ideally, we'll get a chance to socialize outdoors on the lovely wrap-around porch. We’ll have trip leaders and committee tables to show members and visitors alike where we’ve been, and show how you can get out on the trails, rivers, lakes, and mountains around us. There will also be folks from the Appalachian Trail Committee and Noble View Outdoor Center to talk about the fun of getting involved with trail work and outdoor education.
