It has been officially one month since the site has been online. As we are still updating most of
the content, the site will slowly become finished. We have posted up some new pictures from our early
springtime excursion to Onota Lake. On the way we found a nice little shortcut through Morningside park.
A brook fed by melting snow gushes along the trail. Pictures of this and other extras will be updated into
the gallery soon. Hopefull in the next couple of weeks the complete site will be online. Happy trails, everyone.

a gallery of images we captured on our expeditions. I hope you enjoy the site. Now get out there and
explore your world!
Check out our expedition to Canoe Meadows. This is a very easy trail and perfect for beginners.
There are no steep hills or rough terrain, so bring the kids along with you for this novice hike through
the Housatonic valley. Canoe Meadows is a bird sanctuary and is maintained by the Audobon Society. More
information about this site can be found here.
See a beautiful waterfall, right here in the heart of the Berkshires. Unfortunately, during this
expedition the water level was too low for the full effect of the waterfall, but this does not take away
from the beauty of this scene. This trail is a little more advanced than novice level, but caters to all types
of hikers. There are trails in the area for all types of hikers, novice to advanced. Also there is a swimming area
and a few adventurous locals crafted a rope swing. Take a look at our photos and more information here.
Beautiful Onota Lake is seated just east of Pittsfield State Forest. There are plenty of trails for hiking.
All the local trails are nice and have great lakeside views. They are perfect for a day expedition, or even a family
gathering or BBQ. The trails in this area are for novice travelers, but some trails connect to the mountain
ranges for a little more adventure. In the summer there are many people on the lake boating, jet skiing, fishing,
and even diving. Winter activities include snowmobiling, ice fishing, and snow shoeing. Check out more info here.
Technically part of the Canoe Meadows reservation, Wolf Pine trail delivers a charm all of its own. An off shoot
from the main trail, Wolf Pine takes adventurers for a short hike into a beautiful forest setting where seclusion,
peace and quiet have gained there definition. Despite it's intimidating name, there are no wolves on the trail, perhaps
the occasional local coyote. Wolf Pine deserves it's own expedition as it has plenty to offer. It's a relatively flat trail
which is perfect for the younger family members. Also this trail is great for mountain biking as there are not many obstructions
on trail, except for the occasional tree root. It is a relatively short trail but well worth the walk. The payoff? A secret
swimming hole and a small dam for those adventurers who make it to the end of the trail. More info here.
