O que fazemos

Hello! Welcome to the MeetUp page for the Berkshire (Western Mass) Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club! Our motto is "Your Connection to the Outdoors" and with stewardship and fun, we hope to continue to connect with you as well. Unique from other groups, we offer more than just hiking or other outdoor activities. We offer training and volunteer opportunities for you to do more of what you love and get other people involved too.

Only a subset of the chapter's activities are posted on Meetup. To see the entire list of current activities and opportunities in our chapter, follow this link:

Participation in AMC activities is open to members and non-members alike. We hope, of course, that you will consider becoming a member to help us continue offering these types of programs, and if you are a member, we hope you will become actively involved and fill our Meetup page with new activities!

Vistas Around the Lake at Beartown State Forest

Beartown State Forest

Please do not R.S.V.P. on Meetup. Instead, follow the directions to register here: https://activities.outdoors.org/search/index.cfm/action/details/id/113308. More information, including driving directions, will be provided by email a few days before the hike to those who register. As part of the annual Housatonic Heritage Walks (https://housatonicheritage.org/events/heritage-walks/), we will talk about red efts and eastern salamanders, and hopefully we'll spot some at the edge of the lake and as we walk along the trail. The first part of this hike will be a 3 mile walk on the flat trail along the lake, plus a steep section where we will pace ourselves on our way up to a scenic vista on the Appalachian Trail. Back at our cars, you may choose to leave or continue on for an additional 3-4 mile hike at a faster pace to a second vista.

Berkshire Bash 2019 - Chapter Annual Meeting

Hadley Farms Meeting House

Please join us for the Berkshire Bash, the Berkshire Chapter's annual dinner meeting! The $20 admission fee includes a three-course buffet dinner, a short business meeting with the election of our officers for the coming year, and a speaker. During the program we will present Club and Chapter highlights along with the annual "Appie of the Year" award--the Chapter's most prestigious volunteer service award. Meet the Chapter Executive Committee and trip leaders representing all our activities. The buffet will include vegetarian and gluten-free options, and there will be a cash bar. Tickets MUST be purchased using EventBrite no later than October 18th. BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/appalachian-mountain-club-berkshire-bash-2019-tickets-70941715581 Our speaker this year will be Anne O'Regan. In 2010 Anne left her home in Boston and traveled west to do what, on average, only 300 people accomplish each year. Starting in Campo, California (on the Mexican border), she backpacked north for 2,650 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. Traveling through California, Oregon and Washington, she completed her thru-hike five months later in Manning Park, Canada. Anne will share tales from the trail, and offer a unique visual presentation gleaned from over 3,000 photographs taken along the way. Questions? Email them to [masked]. We look forward to seeing you at the Bash! Berkshire Chapter Executive Committee

We're going to follow the Robert Frost Trail to the north with a relatively gradual climb over Mt. Orient (no super steep slopes, about 1,000 ft.). Most of the remaining hike is flat through the woods. We'll stop for a break at Atkins Reservoir and then finish the hike at Cushman Brook and Puffer's Pond. The total distance of this one-way hike is 7.7 miles, with an elevation gain/loss of more than 1,000 feet.

On December 12, we're going to take a hike on Mt. Grace in Warwick, Mass. After the hike we're going to check out the new Honest Weight Brewery in nearby Orange for some relaxation and suds. The hike is about 5-6 miles, moderate paced, with lots of uphills, so you'll really appreciate the reward!
