The Village Enterprise Center will be closed until further notice, as per the Chester Board of Health.
As educational venues are required to be closed until April 6th under the governor’s Corvid 19 directives, we will not be having any classes or tutorials during this time, although we are looking into some virtual options.

Hike Rating: Easy with some slopes Approx. 5 miles total with several loops
The 645 acres of The Boulders provide more than six miles of trails plus the dramatic boulders that give the area its name and offer a vista to the west. There are four blazed trails through hemlock forest, wetlands. This property is located within the city limits of Pittsfield, yet when you are on the trails it doesn’t seem that way. The land use history of this property has resulted in diverse forests including large and old trees.
