The Magnificent Charcoal Trail In Massachusetts That Will Lead You To A Hidden Overlook

While most Bay Staters understand that Berkshire County is full of incredible nature spots, not many are aware of Olivia’s Overlook. There are quite a few trails that will take you to this hidden overlook in Yokun Ridge South, but Charcoal Trail is arguably the best. While mostly an uphill climb, this trail won’t take too much out of you and will allow you to rest once you reach the magical overlook. Upon this 2-mile loop, you’ll find outstanding views before you even reach your final destination. Make sure to bring a camera, because Olivia’s Overlook tucked away in Stockbridge is a hidden gem that you’ll want to remember for years to come.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
