Liked it all! Upper Goose Pond Cabin is a must see....right on the Applachain Trail....crossing over the Mass Pike after leaving the car at the parking lot on route 20 was very cool. Didn't like that we had to go back to our car after the hike ended! The Pond has such a remote feeling to it and you feel... More

Goose pond is a nice little lake to pass a few hours, but lacks the small tributaries and pull offs that I like to get lost in. It's in a beautiful location and peaceful, and I would go back just to paddle around and drift away for awhile.

I've started making this a regular visit from my home nearby. Water is clear as can be; motorboat traffic pretty well managed, kayaking, canoeing, swimming are excellent. This would be a tough place if you have picnickers mixed with swimmers/boaters as the picnic lawn is not easily accessible from the water. Otherwise a real gem!

What a day. Not too crowded. Friendly people. Clean, glass like pond. A most enjoyable day. Stopped by one of the islands to have lunch. Beautiful water edge. Can't wait to go back. Hidden treasure.

This is a large pond that I found while hiking on the Appalachian Trail. It is quiet picturesque and would love to see it during the fall. It is a quiet area. Great for canoeing, kayaking and swimming. I would suggest 2-5 hours. Pack a meal.

There is easy public access to upper goose pond, all you need is your own kayak or canoe. Bring a picnic and canoe all the way across the pond to a narrow passageway which connects to lower goose pond. The second pond is less developed, very quiet and a great place to swim and just relax. Nice way to while... More

Since the pond is on the AT it is more secluded and pristine than some other hikes in the Berkshires. It is a fabulous place for kayaking or canoeing also.
