Adult Group Programs at Pleasant Valley

People looking at the view at Mass Audubon Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary

Founded in 1929 and featuring 1,300 acres and seven miles of well-marked trails, Pleasant Valley—with its extensive hardwood forests, Yokun Brook, meadows, and beaver pond system—is a wonderful place to hike, enjoy nature, and watch wildlife in all seasons. 

A one-third-mile All-Persons Trail makes it accessible to everyone. From the scenic Pike's Pond Loop Trail to a moderately strenuous hike with an 800-foot elevation gain to the summit of Lenox Mountain (2,126 feet), there is something to amaze everyone.
