The Upper Housatonic Valley National Heritage Area announces the 20th annual autumn “Housatonic Heritage Walks” on five weekends: September 3 & 4, 10 & 11, 17 & 18, 24 & 25 and Oct. 1 & 2. 89 free, guided walks will be offered throughout Berkshire County, MA, and Litchfield County, CT.

The public is invited to participate in these family-friendly, informative walks, offered in partnership with our region’s historic, cultural, outdoor recreation organizations. The Heritage Walks are the ideal opportunity to experience and learn about our region’s rich and varied local heritage.

Historians, naturalists, and environmentalists will lead participants on explorations through historic estate gardens and town districts, behind-the-scenes cultural site tours, nature walks, trail hikes, and tours of many of the industrial-site ruins that were once thriving local industries.  There will be Native-American and African American history walks, a canoe paddling trip on the Housatonic River & a bike tour on scenic country roads.
