This wonderful experience will begin by meeting at a local grocery store where supplies can be picked up. You will then follow me to the secret trail head (shhhhh). After some warm ups and introductions we will embark on our hike (3 hour) where you can expect the first 45 minutes to be mostly incline but moderate. We will then connect to the Appalachian Trail and continue to the top of Race Mountain for some of the BEST views in the entire Berkshires. These are breath-taking. Lunch/Snacks will be broken out and time can be spent resting, taking photos are chatting. This is the halfway point.

From here, will we hike along the ridge for more incredible views and eventually return to the magical hemlock forest. Along the way integrating some Forest Bathing techniques like "walking in Forest Time" and a "Sit Spot". Walking a little further will bring us to a beautiful pond (Plantain Pond) for the option to take a dip (weather permitting). This refreshing time will feel wonderful as we make our way back down the mountain to our cars. The stroll back to our parking is easy and wonderful for conversation and reflection on our amazing hike.
Other things to note:
* if there is only one person booked the minimum charge is $120 for the 3.5 hour hike. If I book 2 or more the regular charge is honored.
Please let me know if you have any special needs. Thank you

I've lived in the Berkshires for nearly 20 years. I walk the Berkshire Hills through all 4 seasons and find hiking a spiritual experience or deep connection to self and the planet. I have trained as a Mindful Outdoor Leadership Guide and Wilderness First Aid. I lead outdoor experiences for well known Health Centers in the area to include Kripalu and Miraval Berkshires.

I have hiked stretches of the A.T. (East) and John Muir Trail (West). My other love is photography and spend hours in nature taking photos. I can also be found teaching Yoga, Meditation and Trauma-Informed therapies to include those pertaining to Addiction Recovery.

Our hike takes us along the Appalachian Trail in Sheffield MA. up to Race Mountain. We will have the option to swim at Plantain Pond. We will be able to see not only Massachusetts but Connecticut on this hike. Some of the most amazing views in the Berkshires are on this special hike.

I see Mark as a trail master, and so much more! He was humorous and welcoming off the bat and really set the tone for the trek and practice. As two single females that showed up for a hike, he made sure we felt comfortable by inviting a female friend to help guide us as well. I loved learning about all the mindfulness practices and techniques he's gone to study and actively practice himself. And he is a wealth of wisdom and information :) Highly recommend taking this experience w/ Mark for a mindful, educational and fun time.

All the incredibly positive reviews are legit! Mark is a wonderful guide - and this is a walk in the woods that will enrich you - body and soul - long after you have come down from the mountain. If you get lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend some time with Mark in this pretty glorious part of the Berkshires - you will absolutely have a wonderful experience.

I took my son on this 3 hour hike with Mark and it was amazing. Mark made us feel comfortable from the beginning. He told us what to expect and prepared us for the entire experience. Took us to a place and on a route we would not have found ourselves. We loved it, the sounds and sights of the forest as well as the breathtaking views from the Appalachian trail.

Hiking with Mark was a phenomenal experience. So much more than a hike (and that alone is extraordinary), Mark shared interesting and insightful information about the forest and the area. Mark is also super easy to reach and communicate with and he was more than willing to accommodate my interests and schedule. The views were incredible, the trail and forests lovely. Don't hesitate for a second if you're looking to hike with someone who is knowledgeable about the area and eager to share what he knows. He's also a genuine, warm and kind person. I will absolutely contact Mark again next time I'm in the area.

Mark provided wonderful experience for us today. He was able to guide us on the most beautiful hike with gorgeous views while teaching us about the power of nature. He used his knowledge of meditation and mindfulness & very nicely integrated into our hiking experience. We highly recommend it! Thank you Mark!

Mark is a fantastic guide and local expert in outdoor leadership and how nature impacts your health and wellbeing. I am sure he can go beyond the Berkshires to deliver a world class experience like he did for us. For example, he knew about the timing of the blooms for Moutain Laurels and he created an experience around the magic of that fauna,, and as we ascended into the higher elevations, he described a bit about what we were going to see so that we did not miss it and could experience the anticipation of what was to come. From fern laden lower level to rock terrain and a flat exposed summit to take it all in, the hike revealed the beauty of the Berkshires. There is NO WAY you could experience this on your own. My mantra is "where there is beauty I want to be there"...and I was right in the middle of it thanks to Mark's expert, friendly, insightful and fun approach to hiking. I am not a serial hiker, just like to hike as one of the things I do to stay fit and engaged in the mind body communities around the world.
