Nhv Daytrips: The Berkshires

All this could be yours in just about 2 and half hours of driving along incredible Appalachian autumn scenery, if you know where to find it.

In order to fully appreciate the Berkshires, you should arrive during the weekend right after it peaks.  The point when foliage peaks in the Berkshires is the first two weekends of October.  It's only 1° of latitude northern, but the elevation is about 3000' of difference.  It is more enjoyable to appreciate nature with more solitude, and there will be fewer people the last two weekends of October.
