About Class of 1933 Trailhead
The Class of 1933 Trailhead will bring visitors into a sizeable hiking area in the Berkshires. Visitors will start by descending a narrow hiking trail toward a creek. Plenty of wildlife live in and along this creek, including brook trout and salamanders. It is also the only part of Western Massachusetts where visitors can find Appalachian Brook Crayfish, which are endangered.
After crossing the brook, visitors will begin to climb along the Class of 1933 Trail. Then, following a short distance, there is a trail junction. Here, visitors can turn onto the WRLF Loop Trail and hike on a small creekside loop. They can also travel on the Bullock Trail toward the Berlin Ski Trail.
But, if visitors continue on the Class of 1933 Trail, they will eventually reach a backcountry campground. This campground, resting underneath the shade of hemlock trees, is a great stopping point for both beginner and experienced backpackers. A picnic table and a campfire pit provide a perfect space to make dinner. The campground also features a small creek and a privy. After this site, the '33 trail ascends steeply to scenic views at the top of Mount Berlin.
There is a small parking lot north of the Trailhead off Berlin Road. This is also the parking lot for the Haley Brook Cutoff Trail, where visitors can see a small waterfall.
