About Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary

Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, located in Lenox, offers visitors countless opportunities to hike and walk through the tranquil forests of the Berkshires. Seven miles of well-marked trails ranging from short walks to strenuous hikes provide everyone with a fun and engaging experience. The short 20–30-minute boardwalk trail looping around Pike's Pond is a great nature hike for people of all ages, and lucky visitors can spot beavers constructing their dams in the quiet water. For more daring hikers, the Trail of the Ledges takes visitors up Lenox Mountain. The hike contains a challenging 850-foot vertical gain and offers a breathtaking view of Mount Greylock, the Taconic Range, and the Catskill Mountains from the summit.

Additionally, the stunning ecosystems at Pleasant Valley foster a popular location for birding; whether on their own or on a custom birding trip through the Mass Audubon, visitors will frequently see various wildlife. Along with hiking and walking trails, Pleasant Valley has several programs to try out and further embrace the park's outdoor wonders. From advanced canoeing and hiking to children's activities, this park offers visitors an actual Western Massachusetts outdoor experience.
