What a year. Full of hardships, heartache and buzz words like “unprecedented,” “new normal,” and “abundance of caution.” But as silver linings go, coupled with the universal closures of the entire world, it left one thing open — the outdoors. A place that happens to be our favorite place of all, and a place that we were lucky enough to enjoy to the fullest.
We had set a goal to do 50 hikes & we went way beyond that, doing over 65 hikes in 2020!
We did some challenging hikes, revisited some old favorites and experienced other trails in seasons we hadn’t experienced before. This year we saw Berkshire Family Hikes blurbed in a local newspaper and magazine, organized a successful trail clean up, featured in a recurring column on Berkshires Macaroni Kid, reached 1000 followers on Instagram and was suggested by some of you asking for hiking recommendations. Thank you all for your tremendous support over the past few years! I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels!
Heading into 2021, I’ve never been more excited for the possibilities. We have a website revamp on the horizon, a GIANT list of hikes to tackle, and the workings of a book are starting to come together!
We are also excited to be participating in the 52 Hike Challenge and encourage you to join us!
