Berkshire's National Recreation Trail

View of River Walk Upstream

RiverWalk is a greenway trail along the Housatonic River in the downtown center of Great Barrington, Massachusetts, where 2300 citizen volunteers are working to reclaim the beauty of a "working river" abused by years of industrial waste and neglect.



Please join us for our annual Earth Day cleanup on Saturday, April 25.

 Thank you Amy Pulley for sighting
our first Giant Swallowtail on the River Walk
