The Becket Land Trust is a great place for families to take a 20 minute hike to the quarry. What magnificent views. We have been Land Trust members for years and enjoy it there. Hikers have many miles to explore. Enjoy. Ten dollar parking fee.

Excellent parking and great trails that are easy to follow. Nice place to go with family or friends for something different to do. Typical Flora and fauna for the Berkshires.

January 2016 - No snow meant no xcountry skiing so we hiked to the quarry instead and it exceeded our expectations. We've been to a few quarrys before but this one has an actual trail with informative markers explaining the equipment left behind by the...More

Only had enough time to walk in to the quarry, haven't tried the other paths. It was a 15-20 minute walk up the main path, which is a slight uphill the whole way and somewhat rocky. (Watch your step!) The relics were cool and the...More

Thank you to the Land Trust for preserving open spaces. However, the trail was odd, passing by large areas practically clear cut. The Mass Turnpike was clearly audible for a good portion of the hike. There are also no distances on the trail map. In...More
