With the blossom-filled days of spring just around the corner, most of us are ready to break out of winter hibernation and start planning those warm-weather adventures once again. From farm visits to hiking trails and botanical gardens, the rolling hills of the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts offer plenty of opportunities for rejuvenation and wellness. For Berkshires-bound visitors, here are three favorite outdoor activities for spring that pair perfectly with the chilled out vibes you’ll get after a stop for a cannabis pick-me-up at Canna Provisions dispensary in Lee.

Whether you’re a seasoned consumer or just “canna-curious,” adult-use cannabis retailer Canna Provisions—located a short jaunt from the Hudson Valley, just off the first exit on I-90 coming into Massachusetts from New York and about nine minutes off the NY Thruway—is the perfect spot to stock up on cannabis goodies on your way to or from your springtime getaway in the Berkshires.

3 Spring Activities to Enjoy in the Berkshires

Mountain Majesty

When heading to the Berkshires, a stop at a hiking trail is just par for the course. The famous Appalachian Trail passes through Western Massachusetts and is a popular destination for hikers from all across the country. Upper Goose Pond Trail in Lee is a classic 6.5-mile moderate hike with stunning water views of the lake and a tranquil spot to relax when you reach the dock. Other favorite hiking trails include the more challenging 2.8-mile Monument Mountain in Great Barrington with views of the Taconic Range to the west, and Beartown Mountain to Laura's Tower near South Lee, a peaceful, shaded hike with a tower to climb and a lookout to find at the end.

Lakes of Leisure

Stockbridge Bowl (also known as Lake Mahkeenac) is a 398-acre lake in the north of Stockbridge that is a go-to for aquatic fun in the Berkshires, including swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, waterskiing, and canoeing. Spring is the perfect time to get back on the water and enjoy those calming vibes.

Garden Gazing

Springtime is for strolling among the buds and blooms, so be sure to make a stop at one of the many historic properties, landscaped gardens, and sculpture parks available in the region. The Berkshire Botanical Garden, located right next door to Lee in Stockbridge, has a bountiful 24 acres of over 3,000 species of plants, with special emphasis on Berkshires’ natives, for your seasonal enjoyment. Other popular attractions include the grand Naumkeag country estate also in Stockbridge, Edith Wharton’s historic home, The Mount, in Lenox and the formal beauty of Ashintully Gardens in Tyringham.

These are just a few of the many adventures that await you in the Berkshires, along with a stop by Canna Provisions dispensary, of course.
