but we still had a great time. Very beautiful area and lodge....so much to do, something for everyone. Ashley and Zack were great guides that were able to answer all of our crazy questions. We had a small group of three so didn't have to wait long to zip and really got more time to get to know guides. Great... More

We ziplined in several states, Berkshire East canopy tour ranks right up there. The guides where funny and very good with our group. You really should end your day with a ride on the Mountain Coaster.

I thought zip lining would be a lot of fun, but was not certain I could jump off a platform and zip, especially without screaming. I am past 70, what did I have to lose, not afraid of heights, so I took a chance. The guides Eddie and Reed were outstanding and definitely made us all feel comfortable. With gear... More

My 17 year old daughter took the canopy tour and had an amazing time! She had excellent guides, quality 'hang time' and great zip line rides. The 3 hour experience and quantity/variety of zips makes it well worth the cost. Beautiful scenery and great amenities. She can't wait to go back!

The entire experience at Berkshire East was a distinct pleasure. The guides for our zip line tour were great. The zip lines are the most fun I've had in years. Really adrenaline pumping experience for thrill seekers. The mountain coaster is amazing. Very long, fast and so much fun. If you do a zip line tour, the coaster is only... More

A bunch of girlfriends and I decided on an adventure weekend for my bachelorette party. Day 1, we went white water rafting and on Day 2, we went zip lining at Berkshire East. It's a small company and it shows, but not for anything bad, but rather for all the good reasons. The location had just the right amount of... More

This was our third visit in less than two years. We did the valley jump for the second time and had a blast! Love this tour because I am afraid of heights and although you fly high through the air, it has mostly ground take offs and landings. The canopy tour is great too but you spend most of the... More
