We had a great hike up the Ledges trail. The whole sanctuary was very well cared for. Trail were all well marked. Personnel were very friendly.

Fantastic hike. Took the strenuous option up the trail of ledges to the summit. Once you're at the top, make sure you follow the signs to the Overbrook trail for the way down. We made the mistake of taking the wrong trail (not part of the sanctuary) and ending up WAY out of the way. Overall, beautiful and awesome experience.

Forest trails through beautiful scenary. We visited in the fall when the trees were spectacular. I think Spring would be special as well.

we thought the entrance fee for a late afternoon weekday could have been waived or reduced. the trails were nicely marked, and the map was adequate. The rest-rooms had a strange odor that was more like bad subways, than a nature preserve. The walk through the woods was pleasant, but we didn't notice many birds.

This lovely Audubon property is north of Lenox. It costs only $4 to use ($3 for seniors) and offers many lovely trails, vistas, and much information about the beavers who live there and have built dams and lodges throughout the sanctuary. They were killed off over the years, but reintroduced to the area in 1932. You could easily spend at least a half day walking and hiking around this great spot.
