We had an amazing day at Berkshire East. We spent a few hours zip lining, and then did the mountain coaster. It was so much fun! I could only imagine how cool it would be to mountain bike there. I would recommend this to anyone who asked!

We enjoyed our time ziplining. The guides were personable and made us feel at ease the whole time. If you are going to spend the huge amount of money, spend a little more and do the Valley Jump Tour. We did the Mountain Top Tour and were disappointed by the lengths and number of ziplines. Knowing what I know now,... More

Heres the deal.. great mountain and great activities but $112 for a half day of ziplining. That just makes no sense to me. I had a coupon and went for free. I could NEVER feel comfortable paying $112

4 of us went on the Valley Jump Zipline tour at Berkshire East this past weekend (October 11th) and spent about 3 hours flying through the forest and above the valleys. It was a fantastic experience!! The zip lines ranged from about 1000 feet to around 2600 feet and the scenery was perfect New England Autumn! Our guides, Emily and... More

I did the mountain top ziplining tour this past Saturday. It was alot of fun and definatly worth it. The views of the mountains and foliage were amazing. It was definatly a great first time ziplining adventure. Our guides were both really great and fun! The whole thing took about 3 hours but felt like it went by alot faster!... More

Yes I was scared, however the staff makes you feel safe and they are there for you every step of the way. We went Columbus weekend and the view was amazing! I highly recommend this to anyone! It's a thrill of a lifetime! There is one challenging hike uphill about 10 mins but other than that the hikes aren't bad.

Our large group of 14 had a fantastic time Zip Lining at Berkshire East Canopy Tour. Four of us did the Valley Jump Tour and eight (including kids) did the Mountain Top Tour. Guides were informative, patient and thorough and worked with those who were nervous. Safety was the focus and there wasn't a moment of down time. The guides... More

This was a great experience! I recommend this over the Zoar Zip Lines. Doing this during the week, after labor day is even better because there aren't as many people in your group. The guides were knowledgeable, professional and also a lot of fun! The scenery was awesome! Try it out at least once. Our next stop is the Valley... More

If you are looking for an exciting and fun filled way to spend a few hours, I strongly reccomend the Valley Jump Tour at Berkshire East. This was our second time zipping with them. They have the best zipping in New England with great guides, long, fast zips with easy landing areas. We can't wait to return and we only... More
