Berkshire Camino will lead a two-and-a-half hour guided walkabout in Great Barrington, often called the “Brooklyn of the Berkshires” as a hub of shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants.

The group will set out from the gazebo beside the Town Hall and walk a peaceful pathway along the Housatonic River and discover hidden walkways, an unexpected and magical woodland section, as well as Main St., and learn about native son W.E.B.Du Bois, an internationally known scholar, writer and activist, one of the founders of the NAACP.

Children age 10 and up are welcome with a parent or guardian. The walk covers about 3.5 miles, with an elevation gain of 750 feet. Berkshire Camino leads guided town-to-town walkabouts and woodland hikes through October, with more than a dozen curated routes exploring the natural environment, history, culture and spirit of the Berkshires.

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.
