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.
Our 7 miles of well-marked trails include three popular loops to explore. Details & map >

"I love being the friendly face they see upon arrival and helping them map the perfect route to hike. It’s very rewarding to help someone find their "nature-legs", so-to-speak."
In July 2021, damaging winds from a severe thunderstorm blew down approximately 10 acres of trees on Lenox Mountain. The regeneration of the forest at Pleasant Valley will take decades.
