AMC Berkshire June Potluck

Meet fellow hikers, learn about the Berkshire Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club and how to join us on the trail, or on paddling or mountaineering outings. The speaker will be Bess Dillman, longtime hike leader and nature lover, who will give a presentation with photos on Berkshire County trails—the many options: variety of terrains, habitats, special features, lengths and difficulties.

Members, new members, and prospective members welcome! Bring a dish to share.

Appalachian Trail Presentation with Jim Pelletier

The Appalachian Trail in Massachusetts? Is it part of that famous trail from Georgia to Maine? You bet it is and it's right here in the Berkshires! Want to learn more about it: how it came to be; how it makes its way through the Berkshires; the people who maintain it; the people that hike it; and some of the interesting spots along the way? Then come join us for a fun evening with Jim Pelletier, Chair of the Massachusetts Appalachian Trail Management Committee. Jim will take us on a visual grand tour of the National Scenic Trail that's right in our own back yards.
