Here are inks for local and regional public transportation depots and stops, plus where to get Peter Pan bus and Amtrak train schedules and tickets: how to get to the Berkshires.
The Berkshires town of sits in a picturesque gorge between the giant foothills of Mount Greylock State Reservation and a spur of the Taconics. An 1889 tourist guide described the views in town as creating the effect of “the Switzerland of Berkshire.” Brodie Mountain Ski Resort was the town’s principal business until closing in 2002 (and being sold to an condo developer).
