Set amidst more than 1,000 lush acres in the Berkshires, Pleasant Valley’s varied trails wind through forests, meadows, wetlands, and along the slopes of Lenox Mountain, making this site an excellent location for easy-to-strenuous hiking. While exploring, there’s a good chance you will see evidence of the sanctuary’s most visible wildlife resident, the beaver, via dams, dens, or lodges. 

Location: 472 West Mountain Road, Lenox, MA 01240
Phone: 413-637-0320
Hours: Trails open every day, dawn to dusk; Visitor Center window & restrooms open Tuesday–Sunday, 10 am-4 pm
