Celebrate nature by going on a walk with dogs from the Berkshire Humane Society. Stone Bench Trek is a moderate, one-and-a-half-mile hike that follows Stone Hill Road Trail, Gate Walk, and Stone Bench Trail, and concludes with a scenic stroll down Meadow Walk.

After the walk, explore a selection of works on paper showcasing landscapes and nature scenes, as well as the timelessness of dogs as an artistic subject throughout the centuries. The pop-up exhibition is on display from 11 am–1 pm in the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper.

Free. Advance registration encouraged; capacity is limited. This program is presented in collaboration with the Berkshire Humane Society, Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

Stone Bench Trek is one of three walks offered, ranging in difficulty. Check out the other options
Stroll to Crystal (1-mile walk)
Stone Bench Trek (1.5-mile walk)
Woodland Challenge Loop (2.25-mile walk)

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.
