Make Sleeping on the Trail Easier

  • Location: Great Barrington, Massachusetts (MA), United States

Designated campsites like the ones you’ll be working on provide a durable and long-lasting alternative to dispersed camping that tramples the landscape, and everyone can rest easier knowing that the second principle of Leave No Trace - to travel and camp on durable surfaces - is made that much easier.

Join the Berkshire Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club on Saturday, July 14th, from 9 a.m to 4 p.m as they clear and level campsites near the Tom Leonard Shelter in order to accommodate overnight capacity at this site.

The group will be meeting where the A.T. crosses Lake Buel Road in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Be sure to wear sturdy boots, long pants, and work gloves. Also, bring your own lunch, personal snacks, a rain jacket, insect repellent, and plenty of water.
