Who We Are

In 2019, we made a commitment to get our family outside more. Lucky for us, the vistas and vales of the beautiful Berkshires are right in our own backyard. Getting outdoors is a great way to inspire creativity, to relax, decompress, and strengthen our family relationships. Days when we feel sluggish and static, nature is there to revive our spirits. Days when our energy is fit to burst through the walls, nature is the great equalizer. Our experiences aren’t always perfect, but the trick is to just keep on going. We hope to inspire families to get outdoors and explore with less stress and more confidence. Check out the blog for our latest reviews of local trails or head over to the Activity page for easy ways to reconnect with the outdoors.
