Race Brook Falls and Mt Race(Berkshires)
A cloudy Sunday morning was giving way to a beautiful summer afternoon as I headed down to the southern Berkshires to hike to Race Brook Falls and Mt Race. There is room for several cars at the trailhead along Route 41 just north of the Connecticut state line in quiet, rural Sheffield, Ma. You first follow Race Brooks Falls Trail for 2 miles up to the Appalachian Trail. A winding part of the trail through the only open fields you will encounter.
The trail climbs steeply away and above the brook for a distance.
