This web site is being developed and maintained by Friends of Beartown State Forest in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts. We try to give timely current information supplied by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (dcr) staff at Beartown and knowledgeable people in the local area. This site’s primary mission is to provide information to improve the experience of enjoying and preserving Beartown State Forest while remaining safe during your stay. Contributions, comments, suggestions and volunteering are welcome by sending email to JimB@Beartown.info.
We have a texting number (413)298-2014. This is NOT for emergencies. This is for quick notes. Email is preferred.
Enjoy your visit and we hope to see you on the trails!
