Olivia's Overlook is a scenic treasure of Berkshire County. It provides wonderful views east over Stockbridge Bowl, which is frozen over this time of year.
A look back to the parking lot on the hillside with views down to the lake.
Yokun Ridge North's trails are accessed directly across Lenox Road from the parking area. For hiking Yokun Ridge South, which I was doing today, a trail breaks off into a field from the parking lot and crosses a footbridge before entering the woods.
Frigid winds blew directly across the ridge line, making it uncomfortable but yet so beautiful.
Far reaching views west over the wintry landscape.
The BNRC manages 252 acres on the southern Yokun Ridge, and provides fantastic hiking opportunities for minimal effort. It is an often overlooked gem in the southern Berkshires and look forward to returning again.
