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.
