Tips from locals
Accessed via Cascade Street, off of West Street in Pittsfield. Great hiking, mountain bike trails, and beautiful views. Taking a drive through the park is also a great way to enjoy it - the views from the top are stunning. Lulu brook is a good place for swimming and wading on a hot day.
Stream,waterfalls,flowering shrubs.Two camping picnic areas, swimming beach. Fish Berry Pond, highest natural water body Ma. Vista Berry Mountain striking panorama, great sunsets. Twenty min. drive
Drive up to the trail at the forested peak separating New Lebanon from Pittsfield, MA, for a walk and a breathtaking valley view. The road up isn't accessible in winter, but when you can get up there, Berry Pond is lovely for a swim near the top. There's acres of flowering azaleas up there in the…
hike, take a dip in ice cold berry pond (not really legal, but all they do is kick you out), camp, ski, views at the top.

“Apple picking and fresh cider doughnuts! Worth a stop if you are looking for some local foods or edible gifts to take home with you, and especially if you are heading to West Stockbridge - despite it's unappealing name, Swamp Road is stunning!”

“On the Lenox/Pittsfield line. This is where we like to go for hibachi, sushi, and Japanese food. Best bargain is half-price items from 3 to 6 on weekdays, like sushi and an excellent shrimp and vegetable tempura. Also, if you're a Groupon user, they coupon there all the time.”

“A nice lake for swimming and boating, large field for picnics or frisbee, and a concert pavilion. A google search for "Onota Lake Beach" will get you to the public beach, "Live on the Lake" will yield the concerts going on in the pavilion.”
