About Widow White

Widow White Reserve is a small hiking area managed by Berkshire Natural Resources Council (BNRC). The property features several steep roads that climb throughout the surrounding forest ecosystem. In total, visitors will be able to hike about three miles.

As they hike on the preserve, visitors will likely see plenty of local Western Massachusetts wildlife species. Birds populate the forest canopy throughout the summertime, and wildflower species are abundant on the forest floor in early spring.

Although the preserve does not have a defining scenic view, several unique features exist. Secum Brook, a small stream that travels on the reserve, disappears multiple times into rare underground channels. There are also many visible remnants of the land's history in the Berkshires. Visitors can see an old quarry and find a vengeful message carved by a bitter lover in the late 1800s.

Visitors will find parking on Silver Street, just after it branches from Bailey Road.
