Mass Audubon naturalist Zach Adams will lead a walk with Mass Audubon at The Mount, Edith Warton’s historic home in Lenox, to 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.)

Groups are limited, and Mass Audobon can’t take walk-ins right now, for safety, so you will need to save space ahead. You will need to dress for the weather and prepare for uneven terrain.

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.
