Hey Everyone! If you're close to Great Barrington/Beartown State Forest (South of the Wilcox shelters), you should come to the annual Great Barrington AT Community Celebration on Saturday 7/23. The festivities start at 5PM at Benedict Pond, which is accessed via a short blue blaze after NoBos cross Blue Hill Rd and after SoBos pass Mt. Wilcox south shelter.

Folks, there is gonna be tons of picnic food, music by the Berkshire Ukelele band, swimming, a bonfire, and oh! a few select campsites on and near Benedict Pond where thru hikers who attend the event can camp for free on the day of! Not to mention this is a great way to get a ride into GB or other nearby towns - there will be a lot of hiker-friendly folks hanging around.

We love the AT and we hope that some of you will come celebrate and be celebrated by the people of Great Barrington. The event is sponsored by a number of community partners, including Great Barrington Land Conservancy, MassParks, Greenagers, Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and Appalachian Mountain Club.
