For 30 years the Great Barrington Land Conservancy has added to the beauty of the Berkshires by promoting land conservation, farm preservation, and community trails. In September 2020 GBLC opened the new Riverfront Trail which continues access along the Housatonic River south of from the ever popular River Walk. Families enjoy hiking along the Lake Mansfield Trails, which are enhanced annually, and swimming, canoeing and skating on the Lake. The Pfeiffer Arboretum offers a walking loop that includes an observation platform with a beautiful view of Long Pond.
