About Turnpike Trailhead

The Turnpike Trailhead will bring visitors to a small hiking trail off Berlin Road. This pathway begins as a double track and is well-marked by white blazes. In the springtime, fresh strawberries cover the path. There are also plenty of local Western Massachusetts wildlife species, including wildflowers and many birds.

Upon arrival, visitors will climb gradually on the double track before reaching the Sarah Tenney Trail. This path connects visitors to numerous other pathways, including the Taconic Crest Trail. Near Petersburg Pass, along the Taconic Crest Trail, visitors can access scenic views of the mountains beyond the Berkshires toward the west.  

This property is owned by Berkshire Natural Resources Council (BNRC) and is open for hunting during the appropriate seasons. Because the surrounding forest is low-traveled and quiet, it is often perfect for finding white-tailed deer in late November.

There is no designated parking lot. Visitors should park on the side of Berlin Road or in front of the trailhead.
