Yokun Ridge, Lenox to Pittsfield

Yesterday I led an Appalachian Mountain Club hike from Olivia's Overlook, Lenox, across Yokun Ridge, up to Lenox Mountain and down the Bousquet ski trails (approx 7 miles). It was a great day--less humid and a little cooler than last week.

I love this trail. The northern section of the ridge called Mahanna Cobble has recently been preserved by the Berkshire Natural Resources Council. The views are magnificent!

View of Richmond Pond.

View of Mt. Greylock from the top of Bousquet ski trails. 

We passed some very tasty low-bush blueberries along the way!
