Bicycling in the Berkshires





Berkshire Bike Path Council Vision
The Berkshire Bike Path Council is working to promote the establishment of a Vermont to Connecticut multi-use recreational path of approximately 75 miles.  The border to border trail will utilize railway corridors and related off-road bike paths where possible along with on-road bike lanes. Through the involvement of community groups and towns the trail will extend from the Vermont border in Williamstown south through North Adams, Adams, Cheshire, Lanesboro, Pittsfield, Lenox, Stockbridge, Lee, Great Barrington and Sheffield to the Connecticut border. This primary north-south route will serve as the central spine for secondary connections with diverse destinations, including schools, businesses, community centers, transportation links, recreational opportunities and other points of interest.

Saturday April 26 is DCR Park Service Day

Please consider donating a couple of hours for clean-up projects on the Ashuwillticook.
Let's help DCR get the trail in shape for our use during 2014.

The Ashuwillticook is not listed on DCR’s Park Service website this year.  So if you are considering volunteering, contact DCR’s Rebecca Barnes directly and early.  Rebecca needs a head count to plan which and how many projects to schedule.
