Mourning the passing of Pat Fletcher

We are saddened to announce that Patrick H. Fletcher, our long-time Trails Chair, passed away earlier this week.

Pat worked tirelessly for the AMC, for our chapter, and for his beloved M-M / New England Trail. As Trails Chair for more than two decades, Pat volunteered countless hours building shelters, maintaining trails, organizing, and working with other local groups to maintain and improve the trails under his purview. In 2009, Pat was a leader in achieving the designation of the New England National Scenic Trail.

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.

Our New England Trail (NET) Committee works to ensure the protection and promotion of the NET for the enjoyment of current and future generations. This is done through a combination of maintenance work and public advocacy. The committee is led by a chairperson elected to a one-year term by members of the Berkshire Chapter at our Annual Meeting each November.

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.
