Busby Trail

  Hey, time for a hike donít you think? if you happen to be in Berkshire County of Massachusetts, Busby Trail is a great local trail for doing a bit of leg stretching. It's a long drive from Bennington to Busby Trail but many people like to hike here to be close to nature. Massachusetts has so much to offer nature lovers. Looking for some flowing water? Try Staples Brook; if you come at the right time of year, Hoosic River offers some pleasant whitewater. Why
    not camp at Shady Pines Campground while you're here at Busby Trail; whitewater paddling is not for everybody but if it's for you then, we recommend Dunbar Brook. You'll meet a lot of people from North Adams here, and camping is available
at Clarksburg State Park. Some of the water nearby flows, like Green River, and Savoy Mountain State Forest is a good location to stretch your legs a bit. So much cool stuff next to Busby Trail, simply phenomenal. From a rain point of view Busby Trail is a relatively normal place. The month with most of the rain is August, and February meanwhile is the driest month. Throughout the long summer days at Busby Trail temperatures are typically in the 70's. Summer  
nighttime lows drop down to the 50's. During the winter highs are in the 20's while Busby Trail overnight low temperatures during the winter are in the 10's.
