We currently have over 50 outings between September and June with more than 100 members, ranging in age from 20's to 80’s, who value healthy living and an appreciation of nature and the beauty of the Berkshires fostered by outdoor exercise in a social group setting. Outings consist of Hiking, Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing, Kayaking & Biking as well as a gathering on New Years Day and other activities. Check out the website for hike info. http://www.berkshireknapsackers.org
Anyone can join who likes to hike in the Berkshires and enjoys the company of like minded people. Hikes are rated as easy to strenuous. Hike leaders may refuse to allow people if, in the leader's judgement, they do not meet the hike standards.
Join if you want to support the activities of Berkshire Knapsackers through mailings and meetings.
As a member will get mailings three times a year (unless you prefer online access and don't want paper) and get notifications of impromptu hikes and meetings throughout the year.
