Berkshire Camino will hike easy woodland trails on the Appalachian Trail through the lowlands of the Southern Berkshires.

This walk leaves from the gazebo at the Great Barrington town hall and lasts for about four hours, heading through the lowlands of the Massachusetts section of the AT, on gentle hills, through meadows and woodlands, leading to a section that meanders along the Housatonic River.

The walk covers about 5 miles, at a moderate pace accounting for the distance. Terrain is predominantly rolling hills. Hiking poles may be helpful for those who need some extra stability on short up and downhills, and some some sections may be muddy depending on recent rainfall/season.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
