A naturalist guided walk will explore the Rivulet at the William Cullen Bryant Homestead, home to old growth hemlock and a giant cherry tree.

The Pine Loop also holds enormous white pines that reach heights of 150 feet – a stand among the tallest in the Northeast. This woodland is part of the historic home site of William Cullen Bryant. Bryant was a poet, a passionate conservationist and horticulturalist. Join the Trustees in exploring what an ancient forest may have looked like.

The walk is aimed toward adults of all fitness levels and experience, the Trustees says, and they suggest bringing comfortable walking shoes and clothing for the weather and plenty of drinking water.

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.
