How to get to the Berkshires
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 Savoy is a mountaintop community that includes the beautiful Tannery Falls, mineral springs, and the Savoy Mountain State Forest. The local section of the Westield River offers excellent fly-fishing. Berkshire trivia buffs should note that Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith lived and proselytized in Savoy for a time around 1810, before moving westward (See comment below; maybe not?).
