Take a walk on the wild side with Mass Audubon at The Mount, Edith Warton's historic home in Lenox. Explore the intersection of human history and ecology while walking through the beautiful woods, meadows, and wetlands and enjoying scenic views of the full expanse of Edith Wharton's original estate. This 2-hour/3-mile round trip journey traverses recently conserved land and trails leading to Edith Wharton Park on Laurel Lake. Trails at The Mount are variable including some sections that may be rugged or muddy; please come prepared for your own comfort (e.g. hiking shoes/boots, bug spray, water, hiking poles, etc.).
