In western Massachusetts, tight against the mountainous border of New York State and forming the foothills of Vermont’s Green Mountains lies the dramatic landscape of the northern Berkshires. The Massachusetts State Park system offers a variety of properties in this region: some quite well visited and others less traveled, but all rich in recreational opportunities, scenic views, space to explore, history, habitat and ecology.
