Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary

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. Read more >

HOURS: Tuesday–Sunday, 10 am–4 pm; closed Mondays
TRAILS: Open daily, dawn to dusk
