Pleasant Valley Wilderness Sanctuary information
Lonely Planet review
This 1300-acre wildlife sanctuary has 7 miles of pleasant walking trails through forests of maples, oaks, beeches and birches. It's not uncommon to see beaver here if you come at dawn or dusk. A nature center is open daily, and you can arrange canoe trips on the Housatonic from here.
To reach the sanctuary, go north on US 7 or MA 7A. Three-quarters of a mile north of the intersection of US 7 and MA 7A, turn left onto W Dugway Rd and go 1.5 miles to the sanctuary.
