Several people have suggested that Mohawk Pond is a cool swim. We are going to check it out. I would classify this trip as a semi-backcountry swim (it looks remote but is accessible by road). There might be a short hike around the pond to a location better suited for swimming.
We are a friendly group of people who enjoy the freedom of swimming in the beautiful ponds and lakes of NW Connecticut and Western Mass. Explore new areas, see beautiful scenery and meet great people! If you are bored of laps in the pool, training for triathlon, a lifeguard looking to stay in shape, or ready for a new adventure this is the place for you. We are people who love the dark waters of the Berkshires. It's a good group for people who swam/swim competitively and are looking for a way to maintain their swimming. Swim organizers will do their best to find and lead safe swims. These are cool swims for fun, recreation, adventure, health, fitness and socializing.
