Description

The Taconic Skyline Trail runs in a north/south direction along the ridge of the Taconic Range. The north end has great views of Brodie Mountain and Round Mountain while the middle section passes Berry Pond, the highest pond in Massachusetts.

Throughout the length of the route, you'll find a broad range of forest types from mixed oak-hickory forest and northern hardwood forest to red spruce and balsam fir stands on the higher ridges. You'll also encounter some wet marsh areas along the sides of the trail.

The trail itself is a mix between hard-packed and some loose, rocky sections. Every so often, you'll encounter some low slabs of limestone.
